My dear friend Georgia....we knew each other over 40 years...bonded the moment we met and were lasting friends...even if we didn’t see each other for years at a time, when we spoke, it was like we were never apart. Feisty, direct, taking nothing off no one & fearless was one side ....loving, a heart of gold, protective, caring & giving and a great love for her family ..the other side. She told me many times about the love she had for her family and I so admired that. I will miss her terribly....already do. But knowing that she is with my mom right now makes it all better. I’m so sorry for your loss Jon and family....Jann
Jon and family. I am so sorry you lost your beloved Georgia. In the time I knew her I could feel she loved her family and she was a warm and giving person. I wish I could have gotten to know her better but not long after we met ,Covid hit. May the love you shared as a family keep you going in the months ahead. There will always be a void but soon grief will turn to fond memories.. look forward to a time the Bible promises there will be no more death or sorrow.. you have my sympathy. Erma Hopping
