Dear Furdon family,
I will forever remember Gert’s laugh. She and your dad welcomed our Loso clan at their home so many summers in a row. Not to mention so many trips to N.Y. State to the Zasa family home and pizzeria! Wow she’s now with the VT-81 reunion and we’re sure they’re having a party! Seems like yesterday. Love to all.
Annette Loso Tait, David, and family.
