Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • My condolences to the family. When I was a child Gunda babysat me at times and I had the opportunity to go blueberry picking with her a few times. She loved the outdoors and often said she thanked God for the great opportunity to be in nature. There was no question that she loved her family. - Posted by: Gordon (Friend of the family ) on: Apr 05, 2019
