Good day!

I am the grown grandson of Edward Werre, Richard Werre's brother.

In my youth, I had the tremendous fortune of being invited to Richard and Gretta's farmstead.

I have many good memories of their farm where i worked from the mid 50`s to the mid 60`s and have been good friends ever since. Numerous visits with Richard and Gretta over the years and with Gretta most recently. I was so saddened to hear of her passing as we just had about an hour chat on Christmas day.

We are so sorry to hear of Gretta's passing. Our whole family always really enjoyed visiting with her. The kids will really miss "Grandma Gretta". We know she is at peace, wrapped in God's loving arms and enjoying the majestic beauty of Heaven. We wait for the day we will join both she and Richard.
