    To the family of Gert,
    Please accept my condolences on the loss of an extremely nice lady. I have known Gert for many years, including learning to play bridge with a very patient lady. Although I do know most of the family, it has been years since I have seen you. Thanks for letting Gert into my life.
    Barbara Morland (Wilma’s cousin)

    Came across the memorial for Lisa when I saw that your Mom had passed. As you know I have always held her and your family close to my heart. She was a beautiful person. We’ve lost touch in the last few years but think of all of you often.
    Please accept my sincere condolences to all of you.
