Not sure what to say?

To the Saari Family,
I was very sad the day I found out Gertrude had past, I was one of her first caregivers at NBHR, In all my years of caregiving I had NEVER met anyone as grateful, kind, sweet as Gertrude, she always had a smile and kind words to say, even on her bad days. I am so sad that I never got the chance to tell her how much she meant to me. I will miss her smiley face, I am truly sorry for your loss. She was quite the unique lady. Michelle na/r

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.

I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers with you all at this sad time. Your Mom was such a special person and I will always remember her. The Saari's were lke a part of my small family and like Kinfolk not just friends. Blessed be her memory.

Elisabeth and family,
May God bless you with His Spirit and fill your hearts with fond memories of your Mother. My sympathy to you and your family.
