    I loved your mom’s bright and happy spirit and also her sharp personality. She will be missed very much by her family I’m sure. Just wanted to let you know that I had cared for her when she was in the hospital at Mt. Pleasant and how much I enjoyed taking care of her and visiting with her. Loved her wit and cute personality!

    Dear Alan & Sally, When I think back over my childhood memories of my beautiful Aunt Geneva there are four words that come to my mind. The first is kindness, she was one always very kind with a sweet smile for everyone. The second is thoughtful, she always seemed to have a thoughtful, charitable expression of love to those around her, even if she had not seen us for some time. the third is genuine, Aunt Geneva was genuinely kind and thoughtful, I don’t believe she ever had a deceitful bone in her body. But fourth & lastly, the most important word that I shall always associate with Aunt Geneva is thankful. I don’t believe I ever saw her negative or pessimistic which in turn has taught me the importance of thankfulness, by her example. I know you will greatly miss her. Love and Prayers Always as time nor distance diminishes the love I have in my heart for your family. Lily Ann
