My deepest sympathy to Geri’s family. I worked at Mount Carmel St Ann’s with Geri for about 20 years. I respected and admired her very much. She was a very kind, caring, and giving
person. She was a very special Lady and will be missed by so many.

We just found out late last night about the loss of Cloanna. We were so sorry to hear of her loss and would have been at the viewing if we had known sooner. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear Alan, Wanda, Rick, Carol and all of the other family members,
I am so sad that I can’t be there tonight or tomorrow. Clonna was one of my favorite aunts and since we both shared the same birthdate, just different years, even from childhood and on thru the years, I always felt such a connection and love with her. I have so many wonderful memories of her and all of you, so they are a help to me now, dealing with my own sorrow. I would like to include the following poem that I think is so very fitting:
God saw she was getting tired
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her
And whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched her suffer
And saw her fade away.
Although we loved her dearly,
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
May God Bless you All at this time of your sorrow and forever!!
Much love to you all, Mary Lou (Garrabrant) Bates

Dear Alan and family,
Susan Mott told me that your mom died on Saturday and to look at the Colubmus Dispatch to find her obituary. I did and I read it and I
just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you during this sad time. May you and your family know no further sorrow.
