Not sure what to say?

Please accept our condolences on your loss. We enjoyed visiting your mother at Fox Run with our therapy dogs Miesje and Max over the past few years. She would come looking for us if she knew we were in the building.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all tonight as you gather friends and family to remember Gerd. She was what a godmother should be - an amazing role model for her faith and integrity and love. Both Gerd and Roland were an integral part of the great memories I have of growing up in Springville. My love to you all. Mary Ellen

To the Whitehead family. I can see your dad waiting in heaven with fresh picked flowers from the garden to give to your mom! I cleaned for them every week and sat to have tea and lunch when I was done. I remember when they didn't want to go to the cabin because of the oxygen tank....I was so mad and told them they had so little time to enjoy life and packed it in the SUV and away they went :). I had told Fr. John if I were ever to remarry anyone it would have to be a relationship comparable...

Dear Elaine, Peter & David & Family.. Sending my thoughts and prayers to you.. I will always treasure my most fond memories of my great friend, Gerd, whom I cared for on MC at Fox Run. Gerd & I had many evening walks and such great conversations of our families and just enjoying the time that we spent together. Your Mom, made my work so meaningful sharing her stories of her life and Generosity to others. Gerd has made such a spot in my heart that will live with me until we meet...

Dear Elaine , Peter and all of Gerd's family- your Mom was the best! She was a friend to my whole family. Gerd was the first person my Dad met at Fox Run. She was always kidding all of us! She was always kind to my Mom. I will miss her & her sense of humor.She was the best! I am blessed to have known her. My mom, Dad & I ( and many others!) will think of Gerd and smile everytime we hear "Eastside Westside"....sidewalks of NY!

My dear Aunt Gerd. You are now with your husband,daughter, sisters and brother. You are and always will be with me in my heart. I love you

The foursome and Gerd with her wine!

My heart is so sad to lose this beautiful lady that I loved so much. My love to you David, Elaine, and Pete and your families. She was extraordinary. I would like to think that the best friends and foursome are together again, and happy.
Holding you all in my heart.
