My sweet friend, I’ve been reliving our times together. From the moment we met we were friends. You welcomed me to the neighborhood in Kitzingen, Germany many years ago... Just a few yards and we were at each other’s house. My girls and Christian’s childhood friendships. You my friend Gitti are as much a part of my life as family. I’m thankful for your friendship.
I will see you on the other side sweetheart. You and Monika are together again 💙

Gitti had an in-your-face sense of humor that dared you not to laugh. And her laugh said "see I told you that was funny".
I'll miss her.
