Evelyn, Paul and Zach,
I am so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I would see your Mom when I would be shopping at Penneys and always stand and talk to her for quite some time...seemed like she worked there forever. I have many good memories of her at all of Evelyns BBQs and pool parties. She is at home with Jim now and happy and at peace. My deepest sympathy to all of your family.

To all of Geneva's family. I'm her cousin, Virginia, I'm just a year younger than her... I have so many memories of going to Uncle Valdie and Aunt Lillies house. It was always a "fun time" for all of us kids. I will always have lots of memories of our families getting together. So many time it seemed we went to a place that I think was called "Falling Springs". My daddy(, Uncle Valdie's brother Archie) always was dared to get up on the top and stand on his head. That was just always routine.. One time when we were there, Geneva, our cousin, Marie and I saw a blue racer snake. We 3 ran so hard to get into our car, and away from that snake. Everyone was yelling "It's gonna gettcha". When we got into the car we were still so hyper we just jumped up and down and I remember Marie hitting her head on the top of the car.... I never liked snakes after that. Even tho I've not seen Geneva for a long time. She was always in my heart and on my mind. Much love, sympathy to each one of you, her daughters, grandchildren and everyone that loved her. Virginia..
