Geri has been a part of our family for more years than I can count. She shared a birthday date with my husband so there was always a joint family celebration on their day. Her smile and easy going nature made her a happy addition to any gathering. She provided years of companionship and love for my sister Margaret and for that I am eternally grateful.
