    The Horvath family sends our heartfelt condolences to the Gelsi family on the loss of a great woman. Mrs Gelsi or Momma as I called her over the years always made me feel welcome in her home. She made me feel like I was a part of the Gelsi family. Her cooking was second to none. I will forever remember the many Christmas Eve dinners I attended at the Gelsi home down in Bridgeland. The meal was always amazing. She will be missed by many, and she will forever have a special place in my heart and mind.

    Steve Horvath & family
