Heartfelt sympathy to Fr. Kevin, Fr. Brendan, John and families. It was such a privilege to have met Geraldine during my time at St. Mary’s, Geelong. I also remember well her cooking programme on Channel 9 of which I have lovely memories. Her delightful personality and humour was always a joy to share. Truly a beautiful person in every way.
Sending sincere condolences to you Father Dillon and all your family on the loss of your most beloved sister Geraldine. She sounds like she was an extraordinary lady indeed, making a mighty contribution to the lives of so many people. Thank-you for sharing her Funeral Mass and allowing us all to be inspired by Geraldine’s example. May she ‘Rest in Peace’ eternally.
A wonderful tribute to a special sister.
Deepest sympathy to all the Dillon family for your very great loss.
Geraldine was a very special lady and will be sadly missed.
I am a listener of Father Kevin Dillon Holy Masses, is not Sunday for me if I don’t listen to his heart felt Homily, I print them out and distribute the copies. I have been most impressed of his homilies for his loving Sister Geraldine, I followed the Vigil Mass and the funeral, I got to appreciate all the good things Geraldine did in her life, and what a remarkable woman she was, she will continue praying for her loving family and friends. May she rests in peace. My deepest sympathy to father Kevin Dillon, and all his family, and his brother Brendan.
I live in Oakleigh East, I wish one day to meet father K. Dillon in person, he is a wonderful blessed priest, God Bless him, very intelligent and has a very good sense of humor. His homilies are wonderful, I kiss the paper after reading them. Love him ! My deepest condolences to Father Kevin Dillon is very hard parting from such a special sister, I feel for him and family.
A remarkable woman from a remarkable family!
May Geraldine rest in the peace of the Lord she served so well.
I remember Mum watching her cooking programs when I was young and later I came to know and greatly respect Fr Kevin.
Fr Kevin, may you, Fr Brendan, John and all your family find comfort as you have given comfort to so many over the years.
17 yrs ago, Geraldine gave our son Tom a recipe, on it she wrote a positive affirmation for his life. She made him feel the most special boy in the world.
Tom is now 29 yrs old and one of his most treasured possessions is Geraldine’s recipe for life.
The world is better for Geraldine.
Our love & heartfelt sympathy to Fr Kevin, the Dillon & Sheedy families
