Jane and family, so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing! So many wonderful memories of going to your house for sleepovers and parties. Your Mom always loved having us around, I think. She was a wonderful lady. May you always cherish the special memories you have.
Our love and prayers, Rod and Barb Leach

To the family,
I am sincerely sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a loved one under any circumstance. Please be assured that Jehovah God is aware of your pain and he is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). The bible promises us that there will be a resurrection (John 5:28, 29) and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (Revelation 21:4). From that point on we will never have to feel the pangs of death again. I pray these words and scriptures are able to bring you some comfort.

Gertrude was a one of a kind lady. Loved her dry sense of humor. She truly loved her family and we were blessed to have her be part of ours. She will truly be missed and always in our hearts.
Rest In Peace sweet Gertrude,
Love from the Charette - Chavez family
