Dear Susanne, Ronnie, Donnie and Jamie,
Thank you for the wonderful sharing you made in the photographs of Aunt Nana. Her delight in her beautiful life is so evident; it feels like we can hear her laughter as she enjoyed sports and general good times. She was always a special and talented lady in my life and it makes me smile to see her reflected again for such happy memories!

Georgie was such a wonderful person inside and out. We will always remember all the fond memories of Georgie and Jimmy over at our house in the swimming pool. She was a dear friend to our mother and that friendship endured many years. Georgie was one of a kind, with that million dollar smile of hers. We will miss her dearly. Our heart felt condolences to your family. Rest in Peace Georgie.
