She was a beautiful person. I'm not sure if she even knew my name. But when she spoke to me it felt like she knew me my whole life. Always with a genuine smile. To her dear family, continue to embrace the love and comfort Jehovah provides. He will call and she will answer. Such a beautiful person.

Somberly, words cannot expressed how saddened I am. Ms. G was truly an amazing angelic person. Shes been such an inspiration to me, to my family, shes a person whom I sought to become. She was genuine, loving, kind, honest, always having a desire to give her very best and most importantly true to her faith. I loved her and I knew she loved me. Mr. Jim, it was your 50th wedding anniversary. As shy as I am, she walked me around the venue holding my hand introducing me to most of the guests. That gesture solidified what we meant to one another. What a remarkable lady! She was admired by so many. Classy and gentle.

Mr. Jim, Darryl, and Danna, thank you. Thank you for sharing your beloved wife and mother with me (us). You all and the rest of the family will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Ms. G will be deeply missed. She is irreplaceable and her memory will not be in vain.

Georgia, Georgia the whole day through Just an old sweet song Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind) I said Georgia, Georgia, a song of you Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines...
