I have many fond memories of Mr. Zeets and Mrs. Verna and the many camping trips we made while living in Silver Spring. We are grateful for the great times we had with them and will greet him and Mrs. Verna in glory in God's timing! Our hearts go out to Todd and family and Laura and family during this difficult time. Love, Julie Van Dyke Walden and family
