  3. Dear Brother Gentry and family,
    My deepest sympathy to you and the rest of the family, up till now I always thought Micheal was an only child, the last time I saw him I was 14 years old and the last I saw you and sister Gentry I was 21 or so that was 34 years ago, I will be 55 this year and as I reflect back on what men made lasting impressions on me as a youth, you are first on my list and I’m sure to many others as well,I think of you often and mom gives me updates , my first memory of you two was when I was 12 years old and sitting in the back seat as we went Door to Door and I heard Sister Gentry speak in a Germain accent for the first time, and there after every Germain accent I here has reminded me of her, you both set a wonderful example as a couple deeply in love, I know she will be deeply missed by you and all, may the hope of the Resurrection ease your lost for the moment.
