    It was with sadness I heard of Grandma Gertie passing. My sympathy for all of you, Mary, Tom, Family is without bounds. She touched my life and our family in such a way that I shall forever be grateful. She was a dear and wonderful soul and may she rest in eternal peace and bring comfort to all of you in the days without her.
