My most vivid memory of Gerd took place one Christmas Eve, We were invited to the Duffy home to take part in the family celebration. Being Jewish I did not know exactly what to expect. Gerd made us feel at home and embraced us as part of the family. During that night the family began to exchange gifts. I enjoyed watching the laughter and joy this generated. Gerd walked over to me an handed me a small package. I was taken back as I was a late invite to the festivities and was surprised by the gesture. When I opened the gift is was a Norwegian troll. A family member whispered in my ear that the troll was part of a personal collection which Gerd brought over from Norway. I can’t express how much that simple gesture meant to me. That troll sits on a shelf in my office to this day. I look at it often and remember the simple kindness Gerd showed to me that night and everyday thereafter. She was a sweet, kind, and generous sole and her loss will leave a hole in our world. Rest In Peace .

You will always hold a special place in our hearts. We always looked forward to visiting you during the summers. Memories of you include; your green thumb, fabulous luncheons, terrific stories, love of family; but most of all your helpful hands, your thoughtful deeds, and your genuine friendship.
