My heart is hurting. Geneva and I met in November 1977 when I moved next door to her and Otis. She was the first person to welcome me to the neighborhood. We developed a friendship and bonded because of our love for flowers. She and Otis became by youngest son's godmother. I love her like a sister. I miss her and my life will not be the same. I pray that God will strength and comfort Otis, Linda, Kay-Kay, and the rest of the the family. Cherish the memories of a beautiful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.
