    Sarah-Beth, Bruce, Judy, Janet and you families

    I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Gerda’s passing.

    I was telling some of my wife’s family this very Christmas, of the wondeful Christmas Day gatherings that your parents hosted in Dalum when I was a little boy, and how your mom could somehow deliver an amazing meal to the throng of family that decended on your home, and do so with a constant smile and with laughter in her voice, always.

    I always thought of Aunt Gerda as a true matriarch, so very proud of all of you.

    Unfortunately, the flu bug has prevented our attendance at the funeral, but my thoughts are truly with you as well during this time of loss, reflection and transition.

    Gord and Joyce

  18. SB, there are no words to fill the void that is in your life at the moment. In days to come may you come to know the presence of your Mum with you in another form, as you catch the fragrance of her perfume and hear the songs she loved. May the cherished moments you shared throughout her life bring you comfort. Big Hugs
