To lose sweet Gretchen is such a sad thing for us all. I still remember the pretty young girl at St Mary's and I am so thankful that we later became friends again on FB. It hurts my heart so to know that we can no longer share our love of decorating for the holidays and all of the wonderful, funny things we would share. Heidi please know that I am here for you if you need me. She is now with all of our loved ones just waiting for us to join them! Dena
