  Gertrude was always a good neighbor.  Once when we both lived on the corners of Pearl and East Ottawa, I took her something I had baked and she wouldn't bring back the container until she had baked something in return.  As a result I still have her recipe for "Coffee Sheet Squares."  It's a little faded but I think it is worth a try again.
  She blessed many, now may she rest in peace.
