Dear Ted, Danielle, Carly and Families, we are so sorry for your loss.
The memories of the good times are endless but include our great foursome at the company golf tournament every year, dinners, get togethers and Scott's annual Christmas visit with poinsettia in hand. Besides being such a kind hearted, fun loving person, she loved her family above all else. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers, RIP Geri.

Hi Ted

I was informed last night about the passing of Geri. Please accept my sincere condolences.
At times like this we must not dwell on the sadness at the end of her life, but rather the happy times in the years you spent together and memories made. Give grieving a positive side as well.

Take care of yourself, and when you feel up to it, drop me a line , to let me know how you are doing.
Kindest regards, with you and Geri in my prayers.
John Howard
