Geri was my favorite resident when I worked at Sweet Life. She was the highlight of my day. I'll always remember her. She will be missed.

What a great gal Geri is! I was always so glad to have lunch with her at CLEAR on Saturdays at JCCC. We would talk diets as we ate chocolate chip cookies that Ed McCarthy would make for us. She would teach me a lot about the mistakes we teachers made at her expense over the years but always with such a gentle soul. Thanks, Geri, for being my friend. Adella, thank you for taking such good care of your sister. I loved your mom and dad; the disability community of Johnson County owes your family much gratitude for the advocacy role the Cebula's have played. God bless Geri and may the angels lead her into paradise...oh wait, she's already there!
