Dear Stephen and family. I'm very sorry to hear of your beloved Aunt Gerts passing. I had been trying to get information about her but because of this virus, it's been difficult. We considered her a beloved member of our family and she and my Nana, Tessie Holshue were great friends. Please accept my deepest sympathies. She led a great life and loved her family dearly. I had the pleasure of visiting her just after her 100th birthday. May she rest in peace.
