Daniel, Kathie, Sandy, and Danny, My heart breaks with yours. Zenda was truly like a second Mom to me. She welcomed me into your home pretty much every day between 6th and 12th grade, and she didn't hesitate to steer me in the right direction when she saw me heading the wrong way. I love you all so very much, and I am praying that God will comfort you as only He can.

Dan, Sandy, and the Vance Family,
My deepest sympathy to you and all of the Vance family. I met the Vance
family when Kenton and I married. He was a member of Bell Creek Church then. Also, Kenton and Keith worked with Dan at Alloy. Then we worked
together with Danny and Sandy when our sons were in the Cub Scouts and
Boys Scouts. You are a loving and caring family. May God Bless you with
many loving memories of Zenda.
Mary Kathryn

To the Vance Family -- I went through high school with Zenda and although I had not seen her in years, I remember her well. She was our Student Council representative our senior year and was such an intelligent, beautiful girl. Sending thoughts and prayers to her family from the GBHS class of '59.
