Geri, I met you when you were only 11 years old and became your Sister-in-Law soon after. I will remember all of our good times, adventures and hours long talks that we had until you left us so suddenly. I will remember your sweet personality and your great laugh. You will be dearly missed. My deepest condolences to all of the Brereton family. Sincerely and with love, Denise
