Mrs. Anderson was such a sweet lady. I always enjoyed seeing and visiting with her at lunchtime on Sundays. She was a joy to know.

Some of my favorite memories from childhood are going to Great Aunt Gertie's house for holidays. She was an amazing cook and the kindest soul; I always felt so welcomed and nourished in her presence. She is depicted here with her sister, my grandmother, at one of those holidays I so fondly remember. I realize now that so many of my holiday pictures don't include her because she was always so busy in the kitchen, getting everything ready for her family. She was always so happy to see us, and always made us feel so much at home.

Later in life, every time I visited her, her lovely spirit, kindness, and gratitude were always in full effect. She was a ray of sunshine at every visit, and never had a cross word to say about anything or anyone. Her example reminds me of the spirit of gratitude I hope to cultivate in my own life. She was so very special, and the world is a little bit darker without her in it.

And I will always think of her when I see a windmill...

My deepest condolences to all who knew her. She will be so missed.

I always loved spending the night with Gertie when we came to Kentucky to visit. She was sweet and kind and always made me feel so special. I always think of her beautiful roses, her funny little dogs and the blue and white China windmills I remember in her home. She will be missed.

I had the pleasure of meeting Gayle's Mom and sisters Bianca and Glorita one day when they stopped at my house two blocks away from Gayle. I don't recall what we said but I do remember their smiles, laughter, and delight at meeting one of Gayle's good friends. It was a mutual feeling. I remembered that when Gayle would tell me something about her mother. A sweet picture to go with the sweet person she was.
