    Angela and Ronnie, I am so sorry to hear of Geraldine’s passing. My late sister Janet Lee loved Geraldine as a great friend and loved doing her hair. My late sister Ethel Gilliam enjoyed spending time with your mother at the beauty shop and when they were at Coventry House. Carolyn Bolton, my late sister was quite fond of Geraldine and so was I. We always loved sharing stories about ones that had passed on. They all loved their hair well kept, so I know they will all meet up in heaven and do that Creedmoor Beauty Shop Catchup Talk. Geraldine was a Sweet and Beautiful Lady. God Bless You All

    This is a tribute to Geraldine Blevins, but first I would like to describe her son Ronnie. I have known Ronnie for over twenty years. He is one of the kindest, least selfish, most generous, most loving, most compassionate, most committed to family, most gracious, most soft-spoken, most thoughtful people I have ever known. As I got to know Geraldine over the years, I realized that Ronnie had gotten these sterling qualities from his mother, qualities that will now live after her. Well done, Geraldine. May you rest in peace.
