    Both of my parents were from large families which resulted in having many aunts, uncles and cousins. Aunt Geraldine was definetly a favorite among them due to her considerate and pleasing persomality and the special way she cared for and supported others. She also was admired for her professionalism and christanity. Heaven's gain is a huge loss to society. Many thoughts and prayers will be with and her surviving family members.

    Aunt Geraldine was married to one of my mother’s brothers. I have such fond memories of our annual family gatherings for Christmas at Grandmother Price’s home. It was a large family with lots of cousins. Often, the adults would encourage us to go outside to the sidewalk and watch the Christmas floats go by on their way to the parade. It was magical. Amidst it all, Geraldine was always loving, calm and tranquil. I especially remember how kind and caring she was with us. We were blessed by her presence in our family.

    Mrs. Price was a wonderful person. I have great memories of times our families spent together when I was growing up. My deepest sympathies to Karen, Steve, Debbie and her grandchildren during this time of sadness. You all are in my prayers. Harvey Roach
