Dear Norkitis family,
Our sincerest condolences go out to you in your time of loss. The hurt and pain you feel is natural even though death is such an unnatural event. Take peace in knowing God is providing your loved one the best possible loving care and He also is caring for your needs too. Psalm 94:19 tells us "When anxiety overwhelmed me, you comforted and soothed me." Our prayers and kind thoughts are with your friends and family as an extension of Gods unfailing love. The scriptures have brought us comfort when experiencing loss and has given us Gods plan for those who've passed from our lives. For comfort from the Bible please visit bit.ly/Deathjworg

Gerry was one of my first and favorite supervisors at GVH. She was a great nurse and a warm, friendly person.
My condolences to her family and friends.
