    Geraldine (Jerry) Nardoni was my triple treat relative.  She was my second cousin, my aunt, and my Godmother. She connected both sides of my family, as she and my Mother were cousins who married brothers.  She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

    Thoughts and prayers are with you all.   Kathy as a High School Colleague shared with me when my mom passed 48 years ago "Death is not putting out the light - it is turning down the lamp in the face of a new dawn.".      May your mother enjoy her new dawn, back with her beloved husband.

    Prayers for you all.   Bonnie
