“To the Yanes & Doran families. I am so sorry for your loss, but oh so overjoyed that Geri was in your lives. I am a former classmate (Class of '76).

“Very sorry for your loss.

“Al and the Doran family are in our thoughts and prayers. With love- Ben & Dawn Butterfield family (friends of Fred & Julie Doran)

Dan, and all of the "Res Choir"
