  • Dear Gemma and Family,

    I’m very sorry to learn you left us. I was always happy to hear your voice when you called me for repairs around the house and to do the yard work. I always enjoyed helping out and I knew you appreciated it. I was just there a couple of weeks ago right before your surgery and wished you well. God Bless you Gemma! Tony

  • We are remembering Gemma, and her fulfilled wish to remain in her home and live independently. We are so pleased she was able to live as she wanted.
    It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child, and it also takes many people to support us as we get older .We are remembering also the friends, neighbors,relatives, professionals the many and supportive people who helped her with her needs over the years.
    We know how much she appreciated the helping hands!
