  1. Dear Ted,Tim, Sue and Mark,
    Life is a gift on so many levels including the strife; all we can do is try to manage our grief to our best abilities and try to remember how lucky we can be to have wonderful loving parents and loved ones. Remember loving, warm times and the laughter, and the adventure of life itself with those we love, and are so accustom to. It is a difficult time now and I wish all of you the love, and resolve to embrace one another in tenderness through this grieving time and I wish your hearts well until the sting of heartbreak and loss of Geri turns into beautiful memories of her life that you all cherish and bring your heart to smile and fill with warmth everytime you think of her.
