My sincere condolences to the family. Thinking of you all in these difficult times. Her incredible sense of humour will always be an inspiration to us. To all the other angels up there, say hi to tante Géraldine, she’s funny, you’ll like her. Le ciel compte une perle de plus c’est certain!

To the Dear Family of Geraldine,
It is with such fondness I remember your lovely Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma.
As a young girl I spent many memorable stays at the Grimes’ farm.
I particularly remember early mornings in the kitchen having breakfast with everyone, Granny Grimes, there, always helping.
It was a home filled with love and kindness. I was always able to bring a young bird or animal home from the farm, and my Dad always having to bring it back.
I was so fortunate to have grown up in my early years in Navan. Even though a young girl, I still have vivid memories today of wonderful friends and the community that was so good to our family.
Sending heartfelt condolences.

Sincere condolences to you Gerry and your family on the loss of your mother.
I spent great moments when visiting her with you.
I have great memories of a very special person.

Thinking about you all and sending you my love! Geraldine was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the honour to take care of and she will always hold a special place in my heart! May she RIP. This world lost an angel but heaven definitely gained one! My deepest condolences! ❤️

Connie, Gilles and family, I’ve just seen your beautiful post about the loss of your mom. My deepest condolences to all of you,

My sincere condolences to the family. My aunt Rosalyn (passed away in Jan 2020) lived at the same retirement home as Mrs. Grimes. I enjoyed having chats Geraldine.

Our sincere sympathy on the loss of dear Geraldine. Loving memories of her will be with you always.

Sorry to hear about the death of Gerladine. We were neighbours of Gerald Grimes when we lived in Navan. Our prayers are with the family.

Our condolences to the entire Grimes family. Your matriarch lived a long and busy life with lots of family and friends. I was so happy when she came to live at Symphony Orleans because my mother Alice was there. They had known each other for years of course and they ended up sitting together for meals. With Verna Cotton and Edith Nolan they had their own little Navan group.
