    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss.
    Gisela was the first person that I encountered at the Rotary Lodge when I inquired about playing the piano there–she welcomed me with open arms, and I had the pleasure of her company there, every Wednesday for almost 8 years, during which time we became friends.
