  4. Dear Geanine,
    Please know that our prayers are with you in this difficult time. Your mom was an awesome person that really made a big difference in my life and many others. She truly loved and lived life fully, setting an example for us all. Her spirit remains strong in you and all whom she touched.

  5. Dearest Geanine,

    Your mother was a dear and cherished person. She was my buddy
    all through life.

    It is going to be hard to get along without her. But, I find
    comfort in knowing she is in a better place.

    Psalm 23
    The lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
    Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

    With love and sincere sympathy,

    Irene Ann

  6. Geanine and family,

    I know that mere words can do little to help you through the grief that you are feeling with your mom’s passing. She was an incredible woman, and her sparkling eyes and ever-present smile brightened the days of whomever she came into contact with.
    She always looked at the bright side of life, and was so brave in the face of the daily trials she endured throughout her illness. Her great pride in you and immense love for you were always evident in the conversations we shared.
    I know that your heart is breaking, but I hope that you can find comfort in knowing that she is well again… and is laughing and dancing with angels.

    Hugs to you,
    Kathy Bruce
