One of the sweetest people I will ever know. Such a gentle spirit who saw the good in everyone. So blessed to have known her. Thoughts and prayers are with her children who have to continue on without her but will someday see her loving smile and feel her warm embrace once again. She made the world a better place and now Heaven has added one more angel.

I spent my childhood hanging out at Charlie's house and have many great memories of Gertrude. She use to call me and my cousin Jeff street urchins and chase us with a broom when we were out of line. This makes me sad. Love to all her children who I got to know when I was young.

My mom Geneva Logsdon called me to tell me that Gertrude had passed away. She and I both send our condolences. Just remembering the good times we had being neighbors in Highland Park on Wawa Ave many years ago.
