Geri was one of my best friends in high school. We have stayed in touch throughout the years and yes she was an amazing woman who will be missed dearly. Geri enjoyed life to it fullest. The last time I got to see Geri in person was when we went to our 40th year high school class reunion. We shared a room and reminisced about old times. Other than that we would talk on the phone or text and seeing her many post on Facebook. I was in Geri’s wedding and she was in mine. We had our first babies around the same time, her son Matt and my daughter Alicia. Unfortunately I lived in California when she still lived in Arizona so we didn’t get to see each other a lot when we were raising our families. I love u Geri and will greatly miss u my dear friend. Your family is in my prayers.

I was deeply saddened to learn today of Geri's passing.  I met Geri in grade school, when we both attended St. Thomas the Apostle.  She was smart, pretty, fun, and--truth be told--I had a bit of a boyish crush on her.  Although we lost contact during junior high years, I was glad when we reconnected a few years later at Camelback.  I saw Geri most recently at our 40th class reunion, which included a "mini-reunion" of St. Thomas grads on Friday evening.  She was in great spirits and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with her and catching up.  I last heard from Geri a couple of years ago when she emailed me to reminisce about a 5th grade class we had together.  Geri was always thoughtful and kind to me, and never lost that spirit of fun she had when I first met her.  My thoughts and prayers will be for the comfort and consolation of Geri's family and loved ones at this most difficult time.  Although Geri will be greatly missed by many, including me, I'm confident she brought that spirit of fun with her when she entered Heaven!

My heart breaks for Geri's family and for all who loved her. She was a bright light in our world: so wonderfully positive, friendly, and remarkably resilient. I'm grateful to have known her.

I got to know Geri at our 40th reunion and thereafter.  Nice girl, smiles, easy conversation, pretty.  I hope to see her again someday.  I feel a bit guilty when I think of all that she has gone through and that she still managed a bright, warm smile.  Very, very admirable person and people always seem to say nice things about her.   Peace Geri.  Warm regards and prayers for her family.
