To Geneva and family, my thoughts abd prayers are with you at this time of loss. Mothers are very special, just remember the good times and the lessons they gave us. Stay strong in your faith. Karen

So many accomplishments, so very many successes, a wealth of hopes and dreams fulfilled, days and days and days well-lived and now a legacy to celebrate. May sweet memories of the gem that was your mother, encourage you at this time. I will continue to pray with and for you during this difficult time.

The first stop into Alabama was always to your little blue house with the bright light shining on the side. No matter what time of morning we would arrive you were always outside waiting,- how you knew, I will never know. (cellphones had not been invented!!!) It is memories like these that will last a lifetime, but the most precious memory for me will be the intimate time we shared together this past Thanksgiving, we laughed, we looked at pictures and before I left we shared a kiss and you...

To know my Aunt Mary was to truly know an angel of God. She was family oriented and never really met any strangers. One of my fondest memories as a little girl, was visiting her in Alabama and bracing myself, along with my sisters to recieved the Biggest! Tightest! Bear Hug ever! You will be missed. Love you forever.
