My deepest sympathies to the family
I began visiting Gertrude about 4 years ago, at Grace Village. We talked in length about her beloved family. She used to proudly tell me she had 44 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I am sure it's grown since! She loved receiving visitors and always asked the person to come back soon. Her favorite hymn was "Count Your Blessings ", so I enjoyed us singing some of the lyrics together. She loved Lindor chocolate which I brought her most visits. She would, very slowly, open each of the 3 balls of chocolate and pop them one at a time, in her mouth, sucking ever so slowly, while I waited. She had a very strong faith in God and made up a poem-prayer that thanked Him for each of her children. Then she'd giggle, probably a bit shy and proud of her creation.
Rest in your Savior's arms. We'll meet again my friend!
