Not sure what to say?

Walter and I are saddened by the news of Geraldine's death. Her beautiful paintings grace our walls and we enjoy them every day. Walter spent many hours "talking plants" with her. She truly "saved" the Big Thicket and one cannot help but admire a person who lived out their convictions. Geraldine will be missed by many and future generations will benefit from her hard work. May her family be comforted by memories of this amazing life.

Thank you for your service to Texas, Rest in peace and may the God of mercy and grace received you into heaven. A fellow Texan.

Geraldine has been such an inspiration to me. I will treasure her paintings, drawings and books. Her spirit will live on in the hearts of many who continue to enjoy the wildflowers and butterflies at the Watson Preserve.

I loved working with Geraldine on her two books with UNT Press and am so sad I was never able to meet her face to face. A great lady.

We will walk the woods and think of Geraldine.

I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. MAY THE GOD OF MERCY AND COMFORT BE WITH FAMILY AT THIS TIME OF NEED.

My regards to my Niece Gearldene Ellis Watson.
She will be missed.

Her husband Earl - a great guy who rolled with the punches was an understanding and patient man. Her eldest son Bobby who lives in Nevada was so much older - yet he too a part of my memories of the...
