Celebrating the life of Elvera Henrietta Goetsch
Thank you for signing Elvera Henrietta Goetsch's Guestbook
Dear Marcia, I do hope you will see this message. I just learned today that Vera is no longer with us. I am so sorry for your loss. I visited her near the end of last summer and was shocked to see how much she had failed. Due to health issues, I did not visit anymore, hoping I could see her when I got better. I didn't know how to get in touch with you but I have been thinking about the both of you. I am so sorry that this much time has passed and I didn't know. She will be greatly missed. May your happy memories of her help heal the pain you are going through.
