Gert will be truly missed. She was always so kind from the first time I met her. I enjoyed our monthly visits weather we would sit and visit or take Gigi for a drive. I enjoyed listening to her stories of her youth and her and Tony’s early days. I have a few hand made quilt pieces and embroidered items I will cherish. She always lit up when she saw her grandchildren and was sad when the visit came to an end, I know Erika always had a hard time leaving and many times we didn’t get home til 10pm, but it’s memories I will cherish and glad I got to be a part of. Rest In Peace Dear Gertrude❤️❤️❤️
