My thoughts were with all today.

Gretchen was a very special person. She was intelligent, thoughtful, warm, and the ultimate homemaker. There was very little about Human Resources she didn't know and her contribution to our organization was very significant in many ways. All of us who were fortunate enough to work (and play) with her can attest to how special she was. Her passing peacefully as she did was most likely God's blessing for a life well lived. She will be missed by those who knew and loved her. Our deepest sympathy to her entire family.

Mike, Mike, Carla, and family,

I'm sorry for your loss. Sarah and I send our condolences. Gretchen was always kind and welcoming to us during our Indy trips. I really appreciated getting to spend time with all of us together as a group at her house during some of our recent trips.

Think of all of you,
