My deepest sympathy to all of my Flechler cousins and relatives,

Visiting Aunt Gert and your family is one of my fond memories . Your mom and dad were growing up in the Gardner clan. You have such loving parents who created such a safe and warm environment which I appreciated whenever our family visited.

Your mom very thoughtfully sent me beautifully embroidered pieces upon Elizabeth birth, then later sent matching embroidered aprons which we still have to this day. I will be in pray for your and your family on Tuesday.

With love,

Anne Marie (Gardner) Barreto
