“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” Forest E. Witcraft

    Derek and family
    I offer my sincere sympathy at this time. Knowing Geraldine while I was working in the Auto Dept at SAIT while she was in Mechanical brought so much sunshine into my life. We spent many a lunch breaks talking and she definately left a footprint in my heart. Geraldine was such a caring person and I know how much she will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.
