  1. Kerstin was a friend to many people while she was here on earth. She will be missed by all whose lives were touched by hers.

  2. Very sorry to hear of Kerstin’s passing. My thoughts & prayers are with her Bethesda family, particularly Sonja and her family, and Kerstin’s surviving son. I enjoyed visiting Kerstin several times in my years with Bethesda and especially enjoyed her special Swedish buns that she baked. She will be missed.
