Dear Family,
You have my deepest sympathy. The world is a better place because Geneva lived in this world! I am so blessed to have known her. She was a wonderful believer and I look forward to seeing her in Heaven.
May God be with you during this difficult time.

Dear Charlie. I want you to know how deeply sadened I am for your loss. You and Geneva were always good to me, and William. Geneva was like my second mother for a time, and a wonderful Grandmother to my son. Thank you for all you two have done for me and William. I still can’t believe that she is gone. I will always hold onto the memories we all had together. Charlie I hope that you could still be apart of William’s life as his Grandfather. I know that he would like that. My prayer’s go out to you, and your whole family. If you ever need anything; like help with the yardwork once in awhile, please don’t hesitate to call me at (419)589-6227. Maybe we could go out on the boat again one of these days? I will do my best to not be a complete stranger in the future. May God Bless you, and comfort you always. Love your friend Neil
