Dear Denny and family, So sorry to hear of Georgia's passing. Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Georgia was like a sister to us. We knew as soon as we met her that she was someone special. Now she is lucky enough to be where many of us hope to be someday. We love her and will miss her.

If one day you'll want to see her again, don't look anywhere because you will never find her. If one day you'll miss her, search in your heart, there you can feel her, be with her and embrace her. For the person can only be physically gone but never the life lived and the memories shared. Have faith and be strong.

My dear Auntie G....so many memories running through my mind right now. I loved how you always had a happy smile for me when I saw you. Loved hanging with you at the reunion (did Uncle D ever buy you that chair?), talking to you about my genealogy research of your family, seeing you again in November and talking about the Cubs win! Your gone too soon. I hope you are enjoying a great cup of coffee in heaven with family and friends who have passed. Lots of Love, Lisa Anderson and family Uncle Denny, Denise, Scot, Janet - hugs and kisses to you all.

I hope you can cherish all the wonderful times you shared together as husband and wife and family and that those memories will give you some comfort. Love to all of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Deb

I became very close to Georgia due to us both having cancer. She kept just as good track of me as I did of her and I always felt honored when she called to check on me. Wish we had been able to spend more time together. Her husband, children and grandchildren should be very proud of themselves as she always bragged about you all. She was very fortunate to have such a caring family and hope you all can remember her with the good times. Our hearts and prayers go out to you all.

 

Therese Fenney posted on 2/7/17

We want to keep our loved ones with us forever, and it hurts so much when forever comes too soon. Georgia was an angel that God lent to us for a while. And, now all to soon she is back with the angels. May the love she had for each of you give you peace. Treasure your memories and know that our love and prayers are with you. Love, Aunt Therese

Georgia, I'm having a hard time with this, but I want you to know that I love you and will miss you. We have been friends for a long time, and I always felt like I was in your family. We have shared so many memories together good and sad ones. I miss our talks, I miss our coffee and most of all I miss the Best Friend that I ever had. I know you be well taken care of by the Angels in Heaven, because you are such a Wonderful and Beautiful Person to all. I still can not believe this has happened. I pray that the Lord will Bless Dennis and the kids, and help them to be strong and let them know that you will always be watching over them . I love you and will miss you very much and you will always be in my heart

So sorry to hear of Georgia's passing. Our deepest sympathy to Denny and family. It is always hard to find the right words but I have always felt comfort in these : Know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.
