Dear Geraldene. What shocking and sad news. You have given me so much over the past ten years. You've helped me through the darkest times and been beside me as I've grown in confidence and capacity. I honestly don't know where I'd be without you. I will feel your loss deeply and for a long time. Your voice will always be in my head, gently steering me with compassionate wisdom. I imagine you've helped many people in this way - your legacy must be immense. This is the sign of truly good work - humble, quiet and consistent care for people. I will miss your wit, your compassion, your passion, your sharp intellect, your wide knowledge, your ability to reveal connections between contexts, your feminist values, your hard work - a mix of incredible qualities unmatched by many. I will always hold the deepest gratitude for having had the time I had with you. I think you know how much it meant to me.
To Geraldene's family. My deepest condolences for this tragic and early loss. I know she would want to be by your side for as long as she could be.

Geraldene gave me a second chance at life by teaching me CBT. She will be missed by so many people she has helped throughout her life. A brilliant Social Worker but also s caring person who I will never forget. Rest in Peace Geraldene.

What an impossible loss.
Counselor, mentor, life coach. You taught me so much; my life is forever better because of you. I wish I could have 10 more minutes of your time to tell you how much you helped me; how grateful I am for your extraordinarily insightful work; how this planet is worse off due to your passing. You will be missed, and I will NEVER forget how much you helped me. You are the reason that I am a social worker today.
My deepest sympathy to your family whom I know were so important to you.
