Dear Norm, Betsy, Jean, and Jody,
There are no appropriate words to express my sorrow. Gerry was a great Christian influence on all of the "Saron family", especially the youth. Her culinary talents were endless. I will always cherish the recipes I have from her, written in her handwriting.

I just wanted to share some memories I have of going to the Olson house. I would ask to see Gerry’s latest painting which she often seemed to have a new one. She was warm and caring to us teens who made regular visits. I too have some recipes written by her as she was willing to share her favorites. She will be missed. Hugs for your family.
