A Tribute to Gerry

 

In Memory of our mother

who cared in so many ways.

 

She joined God

December 1998

 

Gerry Routt Gettinger

 

Quietly gliding,
Gentle as a mouse;

Working, cooking,
Cleaning the house.

 

Stopping only at
Night for a little rest;

As a mom she was
One of the best.

 

She could listen,
She could love;

And her hugs were
Gentle as a dove.

 

She was real. One of
God's creative artists.

With gardens, flowers, crafts,
She worked the hardest.

 

Unselfish to the end,
Content not to be seen;

A true human being,
Caring and clean.

 

Her joy was to help
Others be happy;

I'm so glad she
Married my pappy!
