Mrs. Geri will be missed greatly by all who knew her. I remember back when she first started working at Wal-Mart Pharmacy with me and Ms. Mary Alice. We all had such a good time. I loved her so much. I know that the Lord must have needed her more than us. We have been blessed because she touched our lives. Love you Geri!! Mr. Roy, you and your family will be held up in many prayers. Even when we can't see down the road, God knows and prepares us for what is best. I pray that God puts His arms of love and peace around you. Love you all!

My deepest sympathy to this family. To know her was to love her. She never forgot my name and always greeted me with a smile and friendly hello. I met her at the Walmart Pharmacy 3 years ago.

God be with all of you.

I thought I was only a customer to Geri at Walmart, but come to find out she was married to one of my Knighten kin. It's a small world. Geri was the sweetest person at Walmart. When I came walking up she was already putting me in the system and my birthdate. You don't find many that can do that! The other day I went to pick up some prescriptions and they got it all messed up. I was so upset, I started crying and said this wouldn't be happening if Geri was here! I miss Geri for more then her hard work, but also her beautiful smile and those glasses down on her nose.HA HA Geri, my whole family is going to miss you dearly!!

Dear Family, I am so sadden by your lost of Ms. Geri. She was a very precious lady and I know she will be greatly missed. I always enjoyed visiting with her at the Wal Mart Pharmacy.

Geri used to help my mom in the pharmacy years ago - my mom passed away in 1999. I just saw Geri last week, and as always, she remembered me and had that great smile on her face. It's nice that I can write this note so that you will know how many lives she touched in such a positive way over the years. She was a special person.

Shock does not begin to describe my feeling when I saw the paper today. Ms. Geri will be missed tremendously not only by me but by many who loved her.
