We are all so sorry to hearing of the passing of this "Sweet Lady". She was a cousin and special niece to our Mother. Mother cherished the phone calls and cards she received from her. The family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers as you grieve and as you celebrate her life as someone very special to each of you.

With love ,

Geraldine was such a wonderful example of a selfless christian and friend. She will always hold a special place in mine and my husband's heart. Geraldine was my sponsor on the Walk to Emmaus. I would never had known what that once in a lifetime experience if she had not persisted on not giving up on me! We will miss her fiercely and sets a high bar for us all to aspire to live up to her loving standards of what a genuine Christian should be. Our hearts go out to Darius whom she loved so much. Sympathy also to Johnathon and Christie and their families. We will never forget.

Prayers and love for the family and friends of Geraldine. She was such an inspiration and an encourager to so many. Cherish the memories during this difficult time. As I look back on family "get togethers", I remember her smile and her taking time for the younger cousins. She encouraged me so many times in my teaching career. I know she's probably in charge of story time in heaven! Love to all from Jimmy, Mary Alice, Tommy, and Louise.
