    Gretchen and I grew up neighbors and friends, often riding our bicycles to each others home to play paper dolls and design clothes. Lots of good memories. We lost track of each other after high school and then our marriages, but I’ve continued thinking about her often. My sincere condolences to her daughters and families.

    I was saddened to learn of Gretchen’s passing. I met her several times when I was in high school as I was a friend of Donna’s. To Donna and Lauran, blessings on your families today. Miss you, Donna and think of you often.
