    Certainly wasnt another one like her. You had to love her sarcastic cander and witt. And the stories of her life. Wow. It was all in fun and her own personality. I will always miss her. Sorry Andrea and kids for your loss.

    Dear Andrea,
    We will miss all the email exchanges with your mom. I really loved working with her in Kona at Kona by the Sea. She was very proud and spoke highly of her children. We had so much fun when she was around . She attended our wedding in 1999 in Kona , we were so happy to see her. We are sorry for your loss. She was very special to us Love you Geri. You are always in our hearts.

    May 25, 2013 Gerie and I were friends when we were in high school in California – we graduated in 1950. She found me on-line at Classmates and we began exchanging e-mails. I enjoyed hearing from her and we had a good time remembering some of the people we knew way back then and things that had happened. When I hadn’t heard from her I thought something must be wrong and when I checked today I found her obituary. My condolences to her family. She was a good friend and I will miss her e-mails.
