Linda,

God has a beautiful Rose Garden in Heaven filled with those who are special and kind. May you find comfort that Gretchen is among those most beautiful and precious roses … but knowing Gretchen with her sense of humor and contagious smile … she’s probably a thorn and loving every minute of it!

Linda,

I was so very sorry to hear of Gretchen’s passing – I will never forget her quick wit or how she could drive me crazy one minute and make me laugh the next.

I can still see all of us driving around the DQ in that big blue convertable of hers and fighting about who had to get out to get the order and on weekends going to Johnny’s After-Dark.

When I think of Gretchen I smile and she will always be in my heart.

Linda,

Gretchen was the nicest person and everytime Carol and I took my mom to Hoge’s, she never failed to come over and compliment Mom on her hair or how good she looked. Mom always commented on how the world would be better if there were more people like Gretchen. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
