When Ruth and I moved to Calvert County Maryland in 1971 we soon met the Garner family at church. They became good friends and we spent time at each others homes on numerous occasions. We loved all four members of the family. We were fortunate to have visited them in Iowa before R B went home to be with his Lord. Gayle was a delightful and loving Christian woman. I know she will be greatly missed.
