To the Gerdes family I want to extend my sincerest sympathies. I am positive I had met Ron & Sharon at some time. Jane is one of my very good friends. I was in this website looking for samples of obits because my mother just passed away and of course, I was scrolling and noticed the Gerdes name and stopped to read about Sharon.
