Gemma and I have been very good friends for 6 or 7 years now. We met through Church Lads and Church Girls Brigade where Gemma was an Officer and I was a helper.

Gemma will always find a positive in what ever she does whether it is in her Nursing Profession or in her role as an Officer in Brigade and never lets anything or anyone get the better of her.

Gemma has been there for me every time I have needed a friend. She is open, honest, caring, and gentle and a true inspiration to all of us. She has been my shining light at some of my darkest times and I love her dearly.

Recently she has helped me and my wonderful Mum get through a family bereavement. My Mum suffers from Parkinson’s and the loss of her father had a profound affect on her Parkinson’s. Gemma has been truly wonderful with her to the point that her symptoms have eased greatly.

You truly are a Gem… Gemma!
