In the last several years I had the pleasure to be Gert's luncheon companion on occasion. It was a pure pleasure to spend time with her. I would pick her up and often she would forget something upstairs. Well...she would scamper up those stairs like a mountain goat. She was a vibrant force of nature. We both enjoyed the lunches, and she would eat with gusto! (A particular favorite of ours was the salad bar at Charlie Browns).
She was always beautifully turned out and we had great conversation. She was funny, wise, inciteful and strong. I will treasure the memories of our special lunches together. My sympathy to all the family, Diane

To Belinda, Sissy & Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Gertrude. She was a lovely woman. I adored her and would do anything for her. She was one of the best friends that I had in my life. I will treasure the great times and wonderful memories that I have of her and being with her which will last forever. It was a pleasure to know her and an honor and blessing to work with her at Breslin and Breslin, P.A. Gertrude holds a special place in my heart. I remember when I first started work when I was 18 years old and Gertrude took me under her wing. I have known her for 38 years of my life. We shared a special bond. She was a great woman, friend, confident and classy lady who will be dearly missed. She is at peace now and no longer suffering. Heaven has another new Angel. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
With Love and Deepest Sympathy
