Our hearts go out to you at this time of your great loss. Sorry not home so we could attend service, but leaving AZ around 11/3 or 4. Will see you upon return. If there's any consolation in her passing, she's no longer suffering. Take care of yourselves.

My heart aches for Georgia and her family... To know her was to love her... She was taken too soon but I have to come to terms... That the man upstairs only takes the BEST

Georgia & I were classmates our senior year in Florida, & later "sisters." Although our paths separated we always managed to maintain a yearly Christmastime family update. We will miss that card and letter. Rest In Peace, Georgia; And may Our Lord bring peace to your FAMILY.
