It is with a heavy heart I forward this message for another group that I was in with Gerda:

I thought I would forward this email I just got from Sandi in the other yahoo
group that I belong to. My prayers go to Gerda's family.

To all of you that have prayed for Gerda, sent good thoughts and cards her
way..........

It is with deep sadness that I must tell you that Gerda passed away this
afternoon.

I am a Facebook friend with Gerda and have been watching her page. Nothing had
been posted for some time, until this evening when this message was posted by
Jennifer Decker-Vantuil (Susan and I wonder if this might be her
daughter-in-law)...........
"Good Bye Vantuil Gerda. You were loved and will be missed greatly. I feel so
lucky to have been able to know you."

I decided to send a private message to Jennifer and told her who I was, about
our Yahoo quilting group, and how we have all been praying for Gerda. I told her
how much she was "treasured" for sharing her quilt connections and projects and
her conversation. She was a "sparkle" in our group. Jennifer replied immediately
with this message........
"Hello and thank you for your message. Gerda passed away this afternoon. It is
nice to know she was loved by your group. I know how much she loved quilting.
Thank you for your thoughts."

I will send a sympathy card from our group. Even though we never met in person,
Gerda truly was a "sparkle" in this group and it was as if we knew her. She will
be deeply missed.

I haven't been here in a while, except to snoop, but it only seemed fitting that I come say goodbye here where I met her. Goodbye, Gerda. I know God's taking care of you now, but you will be missed. My prayers are with your family.

She was one of the first (and most helpful) quilting teachers and friends that helped me learn to quilt. I simply can't believe she's gone. She was such a lovely person, and I'll miss her tremendously. Prayers for all her family and friends throughout the world.

I am so sad to hear this. It's probably a good thing she wasn't sick for long (for her and her family).

i am sitting at my desk . . . i need to work on some things . . . but my heart is soooooo very heavy right now and if my heart is this burdened, how much heavier must the burden be for gerda's family?  it is some comfort knowing that gerda is now being cradled in the loving arms of her precious Heavenly Father.  many prayers for love & comfort going up for gerda's family, bill, tanya, maya, haley, her son (sorry, i forgot her son's name ) & daughter-in-law jenny, and her brand new grandson, miles.  thank God, He allowed her life long enough to hold her long-awaited grandson . . .

gerda, you will be so very very missed by all of us here who loved you so very very much

having been on this board for only a short time, i did not know Gerda for long; but i have been blessed in that short time with her willingness to teach and to share her knowledge and skills.

she was a very generous sweet person. i will get to meet her in person someday.

   my heart and prayers go out to her familiy and to her freinds here who have known her for a much longer time then have i.

i will miss her but im glad she is no longer ill and is not suffering a long drawn out decline.

 

till we meet in heaven Dear Gerda......
