Dear Family,
I could not believe Rick died, I had not seen him in years but had him in many classes in HS, chatted a lot too, then knowing his grandmother was a cousin of my dads, GEERS, I wanted to see him since I had a mass said for his father at St. Rose. I will also have one said for him too.
God bless your family, I will pray for you in my rosaries,
Paul K. Geers
