  1. Such a sad loss for the family and friends of Geri. She was one of a kind. Growing up I spent many hours at the Dziallo house. I grew up with Michele and Geri was like a second mom to me. She used to drive us to play practice and dances and never complained. She hosted our Pre Prom Party way back in 1985. Geri was one very cool Mom !! She was so special and loved by everyone who ever met her. She is an angel now. We will see her again in heaven. Rest in Peace. You are forever in our hearts.

  2. Dear Bernie,
    I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. My prayers are with you and your family.
    Love,
    Diana Jurista

  3. Geri was a kind, sweet and generous soul and I’m so happy to have had her in my life. She will be missed.

  4. So many wonderful childhood memories in the Dziallo house. Momma D always made me feel like one of the family. Truly a lovely beautiful lady and she will be missed. My condolences to the entire family, especially Michele, Natalie and Bernie. Hugs.

  5. Geri was a beautiful human being. I’m so very sorry for your loss and share in your grief. God bless!
