I am sorry to hear that she has left us all behind, but I'm happy to know that she is now watching us from a much more happy place. She blessed us all with the example that it is better live being yourself, than to die not ever having been. Thank you Aunt Gert for that.

Your wit in telling stories of the life of the six kids of Dr Baley Road is unmatched.
You could bring us to tears of laughter and embarrassment no one was spared.
Those moments will always bring a smile . We will keep a a spot at the table for you.
Prepare a spot for us we will be there in the near future we are old but hanging in there.
Miss you Sis.
