To all my Gilmore cousins.

I am so sorry to here about the passing of your mother. She was truly one of the sweetest and nicest people God put on this earth. When I traveled with my job I had the opportunity to stop and visit with her occasionally and we would sit and talk for hours. She would tell me stories about my dad, Bob, and how she was the one to tell him about the birds and the bees! She was so fun and full of life. I am sure she will be missed by all!

Sincerely,

Catherine Gilmore Jakes
