    Geraldine,
    I always enjoyed seeing you (and Dick) when we got together once a year to see Gilbert and Sullivan. I have good memories of our get together beforehand to eat dinner and then go see the show. Your love of animals and your volunteer work I found heart warming. Sorry you weren’t able to beat the cancer, but l know you gave it a good fight. I bet some dogs and cats are with you keeping you company.

  • Mike & Phyllis Miller says:

    We will miss seeing you on Friday nights at bowling.
    Your great smile and always positive outlook has been inspiring. Our condolences to Dick and your extended families.

    What a great person. Caring for kittens, singing at parties, talking about an unknown english TV series, managing the many aspects of the shelter she handled with infinite care, organization and devotion – whatever she did, Geraldine was terrific to be around. Dick, I am thinking of you and of your great lady.
