You and I had great fun at pretending tennis. Melinda Gillespie

It was a long time ago but I remember hilarious tennis and a margarita after. The best memory. Your laugh. God bless. Melinda gillespie

We only knew Gretchen for about a year but we enjoyed her welcoming demeanor and her
great attitude. She was fun to be around.

We miss her

Love this picture of her! This is how I remember her, always smiling! Your mom was a special lady. One of the nicest, friendliest parent a kid could know. She was always so warm and welcoming whenever I dropped Miss and Meg off after school. She was one of those people I loved to run into around town. Sending you all lots of love and hugs.

Gretchen was like a second mom to me growing up. Her love for her children and their friends was truly incredible. She always had an open door for all of us.. She will be missed but never forgotten. I feel extremely lucky and fortunate to have had her in my life. Love to all the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

California won't be the same without you! Wishing you a blessed repose, cousin.

A wonderful Bridge player and sweet lady.
