    Unfortunately I did not see the bereavement notice that Long Meadow sent out. I missed the services and will never forgive myself for it. Geri and Bob were both terrific people. I’m a better person for having known them. Geri, I know you will forgive me for not being there. May you rest in peace. I will never forget you! See you on the other side my friend!
