I can not begin to express to you my symapathy for your loss. Geri was a very special person to me in a lot of ways. Geri was a friend first and foremost, a very dear friend. Geri was a great staff member, she was loved by all of the parents that she came in contact with, which was all of them on a daily basis. She was loved very much by her Childtime family. She would put a smile of all of our faces if we were having a not so good day, she lit up the center. Geri was also a nurturer to all of the children. She loved the children at the center. They meant the world to her. She would come into work to see the kids just to brighten up her day on her days off. The kids adored Geri and they loved her. Geri meant a lot not only to me but to my family, especially my children. Aiden,2, and Alli,7, both adorded Geri. Aiden could not wait until the end of the night to come out of his classroom to get his special hug from his Ms. Geri. Alli enjoyed sharing her secret school information with Geri that she didn’t want to share with me or my husband. I have had the honor of knowing a wonderful person: a friend, a teacher, a staff member and a mother to all. She will be greatly missed by me, my family and my staff. We love you Geri!!!!!
