    Sending my condolences to the whole family. Aunt Georgia has been an angel to me since the first day I met her at Grandma Ora McCormick’s home. She was an awesome picture of a devoted family member. Her culinary skills, hospitality, taking care of family and making sure all needs were met were awesome. A beautiful soul has entered the kingdom of heaven and now is at complete rest. Keep her legacy alive in your hearts, souls, and minds. Proverbs 31-7 to end. Galatians 5, 1 Corinthians 13. She was tired and now is at eternal rest.
