    So sorry to read of Geraldine's passing.  She was such a fun lady.  My Mom and Lois Miller would visit her.  She was such a great friend to many and her work ethic at E.D. Etnyre was beyond exceptional.  May you all be comforted and hold your memories close.  Rest in Peace dear Geraldine.

    Jerrie was such a fun neighbor and so good to us twins.  She and Mom were such good friends for all those years...and just a couple of weeks before Mom died, Jerrie came to visit and it was just so heartwarming to see those two ladies together.  I know all of the McPhillips family send you our sincere sympathy.

    To the family, my deepest sympathy for your loss. What seems to be a long life is never long enough where our loved ones are concerned. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah feels the same way. That is why He has promised to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev.21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) May His promises comfort your grieving hearts.

    I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Jerrie. She was a fun character and always had a smile on her face whenever I had the chance encounter with her!! I'll never forget the story she told me regarding her little black dog and words she used to describe him!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Sending love.

    Truley loved her!
