A candle was lit in memory of Ina Dawson

I was deeply sadden by learning of Gert's passing. As my god-mother, she has always had a special place in my heart. I was honored that she was able to be present at my wedding a few years ago. I will miss her. My sympathies to the family for the loss of such a great soul. She will always be fondly remembered.
