Dear Joe, Girls and Grandkids,
I was sorry to hear of Gertrude's passing. She is one of my favorite persons that I have always remembered from my childhood. I dont think I ever remember her without a smile or a kind word to all she encountered. Grwoing up we had great role models in our parents and people in the community. They were always giants because they stood out because of their strength in character and faith. They taught us many life lessons from their persoal examples. Gertrude was always at the front of the list of my favorite people even so many years later.
