My greatest memory of Geraldine is when she called me back in May. Obviously, she told me she misses Betsy and Jim with sadness in her voice. Then all of a sudden joy came into her voice when she told me about when Jim, Betsy and my little grandson Mason visited her the summer of 2016. She just laughed about Mason couldn't possibly be Jim's grandson... he was too calm and laid back. What she didn't know is the joy she put into my world at that very moment. We both cried and laughed together as we shared memories of those two witty Mom (Betsy) and Son (Jim) moments. I will greatly miss her sweet voice and laughter!!! May the family find peace with God's healing arms around each and every one of you!!!
Love to all!!
