    Rest well Gert, you certainly deserve to. Every child should grow up with a second mother and you were ours. Growing up next door to you and your family was a gift. You taught us how to endure so many of life’s ups and down and you did it with such grace. You are loved and you will be missed. Mary Coulombe TenBrink

  2. To the Talbot family, There will be an empty space in our gatherings as your Mom will be missed by many. We remember all the good times we enjoyed with her. She was always happy to see us and Bob, especially, enjoyed her big hugs; and our grandson, Sean, was happy to call her Nana Talbot when she added him to her list of grandchildren. Please know that all in the family are in our thoughts and prayers. All our love, Bob & Anne

    All I can say is you were one of the biggest rocks in our foundation wall of family! You were such an irreplaceable part of my life …a calming nature, role model and a quiet cheerleader in all we did.
    Love you to the moon and know you will be with us always with all that we do!
