Do not weep for me
I lived the life I chose
I loved I laughed & cried
I would have lived longer
if I had to choose but
the choice was not mine
So miss me but
do not cry for me
remember that life never
ends and I shall live
forever in your heart.
Kenneth E Gilbert
We will miss Auntie M. We have a lot of great memories, playing cards, dominoes or just talking. She made the best cup of coffee in town!
Auntie M was a second mother to me as I was growing up on the banks of the Sandusky river. I will miss her hugs & kisses. Love you, Ken Gilbert
Auntie M was a great lady and a lot of fun. She taught me a thing or two about cooking. Enjoyed our time together. I’ll miss her great hugs. Love you, Mary Gilbert
