Lonnie, Gene and Nancy's Family,
You were blessed to have a wonderful Mom. She ran a good restaurant in Markle and was a credit to the community. Had many meals there and enjoyed visiting with her. My wife; Linda passed away last July from a rare incurable cancer. We never know what God in going to hand us but be also stand with you through it all. My prayers and thought are with all of you. I am in FL until May 1st. so I will miss the calling and service.
In Christian Love

I am so sorry Aunt Nancy has passed on. My mom loved being with her and will miss her so much. Aunt Nancy went on a trip to Grand Lake, OH with me and Mom last summer. Aunt Nancy reminisced about taking Grandma Bermes to Ohio to see all her relatives. We all had a good time.
