Good-bye Auntie Geri...

Auntie Geri lost her fight against cancer yesterday. I was pretty young when my Uncle Willy married Auntie Geri, but I remember my mom saying that Geri was the best thing to have happened to her brother.

Geri had the greatest laugh, and a smile that would light up the entire room. When we went on our Kauai vacations, we would stay in one of Geri and Willy's extra bedrooms.

I have a few pics to share... These first ones are from 2007 when Auntie Geri, Uncle Willie, Uncle Roy, Joseph, Keenan, and Grandma K were visiting for Grandma's 80th(?) bithday.

These are photos from Universal Studios...

This one cracks me up! LOL!

Off to see the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park!

Auntie Geri could jump double dutch!

... much better than cousin Keenan...

Here is a photo I took the last time we were in Kauai. It's doggie bath time!

Auntie Geri was so full of life. It is so sad to hear that she lost her battle with cancer. May the Lord keep you close.

Our LOVE goes out to Uncle Willy, Keenan, Tami, Kimmi, and Grandma K.
