I knew Gerda firstly on Block Central and then on The Quilt and Needle Forum. Gerda was one of the most thoughtful, kind, supportive, generous, knowledgeable soul I have known. Gerda was constantly in my thoughts and prayers in the months before she passed and I was truly saddened upon returning from holiday to learn of her passing. This touched me more than I thought and I stil find it difficult to think about Gerda without shedding a tear. She was extremely kind to me earlier in the year when I was moving my parents out of their home into a care home, she sent me several cards containing heartfelt messages. I will miss her support, knowledge and humour. I consider myself very lucky and proud to have her come into my life.
Heartfelt sympathies and prayers to Bill, her son and daughter and her grandchildren who she loved beyond measure.
Rest in peace dear sweet Gerda, you are wrapped in God's arms now.
