    Mrs Nichols, I will miss you greatly. You are one of my few chosen patient’s 🙂 You would bring me cookies and chocolate from Germany when you visited your family. You are a very special lady and I will never forget you. So sad to see you have left us………your friend always, Lisa

    Tante, I will always remember our special TV dinners when I would stay over when Onkel John was away working. Your famous spaghetti for breakfast was always a hit also. Jerome and I would run down every morning the week before Easter to check our nests we built to see what surprises your special Easter Bunny left us. There are far to many memories for me to type here but I remember and cherish every single one of them. Ich liebe dich Tante Gertrud!!! Love,Monette

Hearing her tell stories about me as a kid. Her laugh. nHaving Thanksgiving at her house with Onkel John and Charlie the Turtle! nnTante, Ich bin trocken!nnI’ll miss you Tante. Love you! Tell Onkel John I said Hello!nnYour Godson,nJeromenn

    Gertrude You were so many things to so many people. I remember you often talking about the friends that you and John met while in the service many years ago and how you still correspond with them or talk to them periodically. You were such a special person. You had the ability to make everyone feel they were your special friend. The world doesn’t have your kind anymore-unfortunately for us. We miss you already as does Buddy. No more treats! We love you! Howard and Maureen Horowitz and Buddy

    Gertrude worked for my mother and I knew her from early adolescence on. She became a family friend and I was always so impressed that she would write me long personal notes at Christmas,all these years later, asking how my boys are doing and telling me about her family and her travels. And oh, her Christmas cookies were such a treat. What a friendly, loving and caring lady. All will miss Gertrude.
