    Geraldine was such an awesome, godly woman. Over the years we have enjoyed phone calls filled with laughter. May it give the family peace and comfort knowing the moment she stepped into heaven she was reunited with Alan, Ricky and Joe. May God give you peace and comfort as you go through this difficult time. Sending prayers, hugs and love.

    I will surely Miss Miss Geraldine. She was a great person. She traded my sister with utmost respect. And she loved her family. And she also likes to step on big toes. LOL

  3. Paula Stutts Rhodes and Family

    We are so sorry for the loss of Mrs. Blake. I have known her my entire life and she was a gem! So nice, funny and thoughtful. Grew up with her sons. Keith with me and Scott with my brother. She is going to be greatly missed but always in our hearts. Enjoy your heavenly afterlife Mrs. Blake. You earned it!!!
