    In the glory of Gilda’s union with God now; may you take great comfort in Jesus own words “I’m ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God”. May you all experience the love that comes from the heart of God during this sad time without her. Love and prayers. Micki and MaryAlys

    Dearest Joygerm Gilda (aka Happy the Clown): How kind of you to return your 'borrowed stardust' to the universe on the first day of summer. So timely, as you, true sunshine, light, warm, illumination and glow, sensed the dark shadow your farewell would case upon we you left behind. You were (are) true gift to those whose lives you blessed. You leave a legacy of LOVE and in your name we shall carry that 'banner', nourishing, nurturing and keeping 'alive' in your name, all the reverance, awe and wonder you sought and found in the 90 years you graced the earth. You will be remembered; sorely missed but know Heaven rejoices at the Bundle of Joy they have now received. Safe Home. Joygerm Joan (E. White) Syracuse, N.Y.

    Our deepest condolences on Aunt Gilda’s passing. We were so thankful to be able to come up to Syracuse last month to celebrate Gilda’s 90th Birthday. I’m so thankful to have had 4 wonderful years in Syracuse and to have been able to spend so much time with Gilda, Dan & the entire MacDonald Family. We will be praying for all of you! All of our love! ~ Matt & James MacDonald (Boston, MA)
