It was with great sadness that we had to say goodbye to your Mom Gert. She was a special person. The short 2 1/2 years I knew her she became more than a friend. I will miss her.

We feel so very blessed to have shared some precious moments, birthdays and laughs with your dear Mom. She brighten our many visits to The Osgoode Care Centre. Her love for you was so very evident in every smile, touch and the gift she gave us all by bringing you and Mom together in a wonderful friendship. She will be greatly missed. But I do find comfort in that she is holding Dad’s hand in heaven
