Carolyn and Connie,
My heartfelt condolences. My most vivid memories of your mother always has her smiling her beautiful smile and kindness glowing from her face.
I send hugs and prayers, hoping they help to get you through this sad and trying time.
I was shocked to see that Gertrude had passed away. My heart aches for you. I know exactly how you feel. The pain gets easier some days as time goes on. You should be very proud for caring for your Mother the way you did. She loved you so and was so proud of you. I loved your Mother, she always made me have a smile when talking with her. Let GOD help you with the pain and the heart ache you have. HE will carry most of the burden for you. Please keep in touch. Both you and your Mother have left a footprint on my heart that I will never forget. Love and Blessing
