We were always warmly welcomed into their house by Goldie and Gene I even probably got on there nerves sometimes, but welcomed regardless, I was always collecting bees around that pear tree in there back yard, or coming over first thing in the morning to walk to school with Noah, I loved to look at the fish tank while I waited for him, Goldie and Gene were almost family, and that really hit home when I learned of their passing, my heart goes out to all of you in this sad time, Goldie and Gene were loved by many

Gma it breaks my heart that you are gone. God looked around his garden and found an empty space. Then he looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put his arm around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful because he only takes the best!! I know you and Gpa are together now.
Fly high and watch over all of us!!!
I love you so much!!!
