We will miss her smile and warm friendship and certainly her entertaining that she loved to do. Things will never be the same on Opal Drive.

My condolences to you and your families, Tom and Mark. I have fond memories of your Mom, Gert. She was like a second mother to me in my early years when I growing up on Milton Street.

Gertie's Family: We're so saddened to hear of Gertie's passing but know that she is at peace now with her beloved husband and her heavenly father. Our time we spent with her will be remembered forever. She was certainly a wonderful friend and neighbor to my sister Jessie in Fl. They had such a good visit with her this past summer.
