Our heartfelt prayers and sympathy are with you as you grieve the loss of Aunt Gena. Since our family cannot be there, I wanted to write to tell you something that you already know: Aunt Gena was a wonderful woman.

When Peter and I were growing up, we always enjoyed visiting at Uncle Stanley and Aunt Gena’s house. Each time we visited, we had a lot of fun with Richard, Linda, and Margaret, and we loved fooling around in the basement. Uncle Stanley would show us his model train setup, and we felt so grown up sitting at the bar. But thinking back, what touched my heart the most was Aunt Gena’s warm, gracious manner. I remember that our family was always heartily welcomed for a visit, or for a meal, or for the weekend. Aunt Gena always made us feel right at home and always prepared something special for us like roast beef, gravy, and mashed potatoes.

I will always remember Aunt Gena as a loving person. She was genuinely sweet to me, and she always spoke in a kind, encouraging manner. Smiles and laughter came easily to Aunt Gena, and her positive nature made a lasting impression on me.

I know that you’ll sorely miss Aunt Gena, and I know that you were blessed by God to have had her in your lives. Saying goodbye to her must have been heartbreaking. I wish that my family and I could be there to pay our respects to her and you and to tell all of you in person what a blessing she was. We will be praying for you as you grieve and adapt to life without Aunt Gena. I, like you, am looking forward to seeing her in heaven someday.
