My deepest syompathy to John and the entire family. She was quite the woman!

Our sincere prayers go out to John and family. Geri gave me a gallon of marigold seeds last year and I planted them randomly in my yard this past spring. I'm saving the seeds to plant them again next year in her memory. She and I both have a passion for flowers. God bless you Geri.
