Dave, Chiz and Lyle and families. Our sincere sympathy to all of you. Your mother was a wonderful Aunt to us. But,it doesn't seem possible that all of the 16 Kerstetter siblings have now moved on to their eternal homes. She will be missed. I feel so sad that i didn't visit her more at the nursing home. When mom was there, your mom visited her every day. We were so appreciative of that.
