Sending my thoughts and prayers to Tony, Greg and Patrice and families. Geri was a very down to earth, sweet lady. Keep her in your hearts and she will watch over you always. She will be missed.
What a wonderful charity to pick. Will certainly donate. And Monkey, youve got your Mama’s eyes!
Patrice, Keeping you and the family in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry to hear this. Please take care and give Austin a big hug.
My wife and I boarded our dogs with Geri and Vince for over 20 years. Geri was always so loving and caring towards the dogs. She was also a good friend. I always enjoyed talking with her when we dropped off or picked-up our dogs. She had a good heart and will be sorely missed.
Tony, Patrice, Greg and families,
I’m very saddened to hear of your mom’s passing. You know that she was a mother to me during some crucial young adult years and left such an impact on me. She’s one of the strongest and most loving women I’ve been blessed to know and I’ll carry a piece of her with me always. May 2018 bring you peace and healing. She will be watching over you. I miss you all too.
