great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren and a large number of nephews, nieces
and friends.

So sad to hear of the death of my dear friend Gertie. We lived next door to each other at the Senior Citizens Complex in Eastport for a few years. When she moved to Lakeside homes in Gander, I missed her immensely and even more so today. My condolences go to her wonderful family.
