    To the Geraci family,

    I was very sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. My heart goes out to you all. I remember her from my teen years. Used to swim at Artemis Pool, dance at Surfside, and jump on the trampolines when she worked at the place in Grayslake. Have good memories of her! Sometimes, if they weren’t too busy, she would let us have a longer time on the trampolines! Used to be friends with Ron, and a group of friends that hung out together, often at the pool! Fun and simpler times. May God grant you all His Peace that surpasses all understanding, now and in the days ahead.

    Ron, Very sorry to learn of your mothers passing.I think she was the one that caught you driving your car when you were only 15 because you forgot to put the seat back in the right position. Mothers are extremely smart. Jon
