    Dear Rick & family, I am so saddened to hear of Geri’s passing. We had stayed in touch all these years since I taught and coached her at Longfellow Jr, High in the mid 70’s. Both she and Teri were outstanding athletes and more importantly, outstanding people! You’re all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult loss.
    Fondly, Mary Drey
