Our Sincere Condolences

A very special and wonderful Aunt that I loved to visit and go to garage sales and have so much fun with. I’ll miss you so much but I know you’re with all your sisters and brothers now and your mom and dad. God was ready for you now. I’ll see you again one day. I love you with all my heart. Geraldine
