  • Dear Elmar & Ginny.
    So sorry to read of your mother’s passing. It was about a month ago I was talking to her in Kroger’s one day. We had a nice visit. I’m so glad I ‘bumped’ into her on that day.
    Please take care,

  • My condolences to the entire Goble family on the passing of Elmar’s mother. Just today, I had viewed a 1957 Christmas photo of the Edwin Boardman Family and saw a picture of Mom beside “Aunt” Ginny. I sent the picture to Mom and she gave me the solemn news.

    P.S. I was not aware that Elmar’s mother was born in Germany. Our family just, last evening, watched The Darkest Hour movie which was set in England during WWII.

  • Terry, Tobi and all the family,
    We are so sorry about your mom and grandmother. As I’d mentioned more than once, she was always intersting to talk to—and fun! She knew how to have a good time and keep the conversation lively. Her wonderful family is an ongoing tribute to her legacy. Sending many prayers and hugs your way.
    God bless,
    David and Joanie
