Geraldine is irreplaceable, like most great women and mother's, she was a strong individual. She was my world, she taught me so much. We had a normal Mother daughter relationship; but good and bad she was always there for me and my children. Unlike her, I had my Mother to rely on, to support me, to encourage me throughout my life. These last eight years have been difficult for us all, while she struggled with Alzheimer's and then she broke her hip. In the end she succumbed to the flu of 2018 which over stressed her heart, which she contracted at the hospital while being treated for an infection. She will be greatly missed.
