    Sweet Mama G .. such a beautiful lady. My condolences to her family. May you find comfort in your memories until we see her again!

    As grief fills all our hearts
    Sorrow flows from our eyes
    Jehovah offers comfort
    With hope of Paradise

    The beauty of this woman
    Who touched so many lives
    Will be a sweet memory
    Until we see her rise

    Then her face we’ll see again
    And see her running free
    Welcome her with open arms
    “We missed you, Mama G!”

    Geraldine was a nice pleasant person. So easy to feel comfortable with. For zoom service she was quiet..but one time the conversation was about old movies..boy did she talk!! I will miss her until she returns to us very soon.

Take comfort in your memories and may her they continually be a source of blessings for you.

    Hello to Lynn and family from the Daniely’s. It,s with our deepest heartfelt sympathies that we give you our condolences. Losing a devoted spiritual person as your dear mother proved to be, affects us all! It’s like the brother said in his discourse, Jesus felt the pain of his friends, at the loss of their brother Lazarus. So, do we, as fellow brothers and sisters!

    But thankfully, we do not mourn on as the nation do, because of ha ing no hope. We, as Jehovah’s people know with surety, we have a beautiful future to look forward to. So, we keep our eyes fixed on the prize of everlasting life. Your dear mother endured to the end, so she has a sure place in Jehovah’s memory. It’s as though she’s already there, awaiting.

    We look forward to meeting your mother in the new world to come, as she returns to you in perfect health and everlasting beauty! Until then, keep your memory of her close to your heart, and cherish the time you had with her, until the day when she is called, and will answer.

    We’re here for you Lynn and we love you, so please let us know whenever the need. Again, you have our deepest sympathy for the loss of your beautiful mother.
    Marion and Val Daniely

    We love you, David & Adriana P

    My Dear Lisa and Family,
    Such a beautiful, beautiful lady ! We all loved being in service with your mom and hearing her laughter. Her color purple and love of elephants are my favorites too and what a wonderful thought that we will finally get to enjoy that “elephant ride” in the New System. We had just begun our friendship together but will continue it once she wakes up from a restful sleep. I look forward to being in service with your mom again as we teach the newly resurrected ones, the Truth. She will continue right where she left off, telling others about our wonderful God, Jehovah.
    Stay strong in Jehovah’s love,
    with sincere love and affection,
    Janet Denk

    I am sorry for the lost of our help mother
    I know what it’s like to lose your mother. But Jehovah has given us the hope of the resurrection. That gives me comfort and I pray that it will be a comfort to you.

  20. Tom & Michele Jacobs on May 16, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    Lisa.. I remember meeting Geraldine for the first time with the merge and I immediately felt comfortable calling her “mama”. Such a kind person and it was obvious she was a true lady. I admired so much how she conquered her uneasiness with zoom because she wanted to join service! What a spiritual sister! We can’t wait to get to know her better very soon! Our deepest sympathies to you Lisa and all her family who loved her so much.

  21. Joyce Caldwell on May 18, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Dear Lisa and family, so sorry for your loss. Geraldine was a beautiful sister and we will treasure the time we had with her in the Wentzville congregation. May Jehovah comfort you until we can see her again. Sending my love and prayers.
