I was so sorry to hear of Geraldine's death.  We had such a great visit at the NIFTY-FIFTY reunion in 1994 and I was so hoping to see her again. My prayers and thoughts are with her family.  Fern Harver McAllister

I was really saddened to hear about Geraldine's death.  We hadn't seen each other for all these years after high school, and then got reacquainted at the 1994 "Nifty Fifties" reunion.  Her family lived two houses up the street from us, and she used to play with my two sisters.  I think we knew each other from the first grade on.  We exchanged Christmas cards for several years after the 1994 reunion, and I was expecting to one day see her again.  It was not to be, but I am thankful for the time we did get to spend together and relive old times.
