It is with some sadness I announce my passing from this earth. Mostly I leave with appreciation and anticipation. I was incredibly fortunate to be born to Rev. and Mrs. Herbert and Ethel Gastmeier, who raised me a Christian, which –though often failingly – I tried to be. My foundation. I was raised with siblings William, Jane and Katherine, who proved through all, blood is thicker than water. I had the privilege to help raise to adulthood two children of my own, Ariel & Joel of who I am tremendously proud. There were friendships and loves, acquaintances and enemies. Some lifelong though intermittent. Others short lived and fleeting. All were a joy and or source of learning in their time. That love your enemies was a tough one. My ashes will be scattered at the homes of my life and Hoffman Beach, Golden Lake, ON. As expressions of sympathy or joy, please resolve to speak the truth. Always Thanks. For everyone shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. Salt is good, but if the salt have lost his saltness where with ye season it? Have salt in yourselves and have peace one with another. Hope to see you soon. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the W. G.
