Ken,Sue, and the Gauerke/Turner Family Susan and I are deeply saddened on the sudden passing of Shirley. It was a great joy to me to see and visit with you and Shirley at church on Sunday mornings. Ken, you and Shirley remind me of my own grandparents, cut from the same cloth of America's greatest generation who grew up in the Depression, saved the world from tyranny and hatred, and created economic prosperity for generations.
