My deepest sympathies to Mrs Gerene. I was at St Patrick Catholic Church for the service today. I have no known your daughter personally, but the service said it all. It was beautiful and filled with love; reflecting what had been said about her.

No amount of words will be able to express how much you mean to all of us and how much you've touched our lives. You were more than just our General Manager, you were a friend to all of us and a mother to some. I remember you would always go out of your way to make us all happy and you never cease to put a smile on our faces day after day. You've always been there for us since the day you arrived to our store and you've done nothing but make us better. You will truly be missed and not a day goes by that i don't think about you. Rest easy, we all love you.
