Kevin was and is still my best Buddy. We grew up together on the ocean a couple of roads apart. Our stories are one of legends the times we had. I remember Kevin picking me up for school in his Karman Ghia and then we picked up Gretchen she road in my lap. What a great and loving person. Some folks just leave to early but I know we will see them again so no worries

When I think of Gretchen, I see her beautiful smile. She was such a sweet, gentle lady full of love and happiness. She left footprints on everyone she met and will be missed by all. Pastor Wes Olds from Grace Church once said: “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly!” Gretchen loved all of God’s creatures and I like to think of her free spirit in this poem by Kathryn Poland (12 Apr 2001):
Messenger of God
Oh, Little Butterfly, Messenger of God,
When I see you in the sky, I cannot help but nod.
You bring me respite from grief and despair
Every time I see you sailing through the air.
You renew my faith in all God’s wondrous plan,
And I know it’s all in FAITH,
Not in what I understand.

Gretchen touched my life just when I needed spiritual guidance, as we all do daily, however , our Pastor at the time, realized our love for the children, so we teamed up, began sharing the Word to them, and to each other. I loved her and I knew she would be my forever friend👼 I am heartbroken for her family, my thoughts and prayers are with them. She will be dearly missed😔

Gretchen was such a kind and generous soul. Her heart for the animal kingdom was special. They were like her children. She tried to nurture them, find homes for them and make sure they were treated humanely.

I worked with Gretchen for several years in the dental business. She was a very sweet and gentle soul who loved her family and all the stray and injured animals of the world. Amazingly talented. My deepest sympathy for Kevin and Nicholas.

I have no words. Gretchen and I have kept up on FB as recent as last week. I am broken hearted with this news and can't imagine the pain her sweet husband and son are feeling. I have such fond memories of us working together for many years. Prayers for Kevin and Nicholas for comfort and strenghth. Janis Schmitz

I just received a call from Dr. Burnsides office, Dena, sharing this tragic news. Kevin, Earl and I are so sadly . deeply touched by this news. I know we have not kept in touch for years, but always have thoughts at different times of Gretchen and your family through the years. My memories, working with Gretchen at the dental office of course. Hanging out with your Blues band practicing and doing shows. Excitingly sharing her news of her getting pregnant with Nicholas. And I am sure their are many other memories. We pray you and your family will be strengthened and saturated with Peace of Jesus Christ ,beyond all understanding, through your loss. Love , Sandy and Earl
