To Doug, Sherry and Becky McPherson, It was with a heavy heart that I read of Winnie's passing. Your mother was a wonderful woman, friend and neighbor all those years ago. I have good memories of being neighbors and watching all the children growing up. I would think of Gary and Winnie every time I passed the Outdoorsman Shop. I am so sorry for your loss but happy she is with Gary once again. Maureen Seal Eaton Greenwood, IN
