Dearest Robert and Family,
How lucky I am to have gotten to know you and Geri over the years. What stands out most from our impromptu meetings in the VA hallways or at the gym is rarely, when we crossed paths, was Geri not by your side. I always admired how happy and comfortable you both were in your togetherness. My heart is with you, Robert, as you navigate the loss of your Irish rose, family by your side. Offering you love, light, and peace in your time of sorrow.
Sincerely,
Jan Diller
VA RN

We met Geri through Western State Bank in Cheyenne Wy. She was a lovely person to talk to loved her voice. Geri was so friendly and always had a beautiful smile no matter what! When you walked into the bank she would always remember your name and wave to you. We send our thoughts to the family and God Bless Geri for all her goodness to one and all.

My beautiful Aunty Geraldine AKA: Penelope Darling, although it has been many years since I have seen you, I have never forgotten the times I spent with you and uncle Robbie and my three cousins Alison, Suzanne and Kathrine. My first taste of pizza was with you guy's on the base, going to the movies, I really use to feel like I was in America, so many happy memories that will remain in my heart forever. You was always so bubbly and had a heart of gold, as a child I aspired to be just like you. My sincere condolences to Robbie, Alison, Suzanne, Kathrine, all Geri's Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren, may God Bless each one of you with Healing Love and Light at this very sad time. I love you all ❤️❤️❤️ Aunty Geraldine Rest in Perfect Angelic Peace Our beautiful Rose of Roscommon 🙏💔💔💔🙏

A beautiful person has left this world but she will always be around you to listen, hopefully this will offer consolation in the days and years ahead.
I would like to acknowledge aunt Geraldine's grandchildren and great grandchildren , it is difficult for young people to deal with these events, so I offer my sincere condolences to you all.

God bless you Geraldine, now at rest with all who passed on before you. My mum (your niece Bernadette who was daughter of Mabel) who sadly passed away in April 2020 shared some memories she had with you when you was young, you was only 7 or so years older, she was very fond of you and she always told us about the Kitten in the baby pram and the perfume you made with her from rose petals when she’d visit.
To your loving family, I’m so sorry for your loss and our thoughts are with you at such a sad time
