Gisela, You were strong yet gentle and never let Parkinson's take your love of knitting and crocheting. We were blessed to have you as a member of our little Parkinson's family. Thank you for my crocheted treasure. I will cherish it and smile when I think of you. Rest In Peace my friend.

Gisela was a special friend. She was first lady to welcome me to OUMC. She was a fiesty lady and I loved her dearly. Praying God's comfort surrounds her family.
