    So sad to learn about Gerry Woods passing. She was a great lady and a good friend. We spent many fun times together with her and John throughout the years. They were always fun to go out with. Sometimes after the cattle sales we would meet at De Kalb Hotel for a drink or just to visit. They were always fun to be with. I could tell you many fun stories if we were sitting around talkin about the “old days” Rest in Peace Gerry, and give John and Ella and Carl a hug from us. Loving memories, Bob and Peggy Ray.
