We'll always have wonderful memories of our special friend "Gertie."   We always looked forward to her visits because she was part of our extended family. Although our hearts are heavy, we know she's with Leonard in Heaven.

I have many fond memories of Gertie while growing up on South Franklin Street as a kid.  She was such a kind, cheerful woman and so helpful to my Mom. May you rest in peace Gertie.
