May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
I am so sorry for your loss. Ms Burch was a client of mine for her affordable housing. She was a joy to work with. She always had questions. If she made one phone call to me, she made dozens. And even though the questions were generally the same, I still enjoyed talking to her. I had only met her in person twice. Losing one's mother just before mother's day, and losing a sister adds to the grief. But she is at peace. And when St Peter let her in through the pearly gates, I'm sure she got his phone number because she'll have a lot of questions for him.
May she rest in peace.
Our deepest sympathy on the passing of Geraldine. Our families have been neighbor's for many years--in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
