I am so sad for the loss of your mother, but what a blessing that she is free from her suffering on this earth, and has gone to a better place. I always remember how pleasant and loving she was, and the beautiful family she raised. May God bless you during this time.

Geraldine’s family, I am sorry for your loss of Geraldine, she was such a sweet person. I feel like you all were my cousins too as I was with Barbara so much. I know Ozzie, Jerry and Glen better than I do her children. So many years have gone by and I don’t get to see you all. I do not see Barbara but we talk a lot. Love to you all. Joyce
