Georgina was my boss for 8 years, but was my friend far longer than that, it doesn’t seem like your going to work when you had her for a boss, we were family, we made so many memories together, life will never be the same with out her in it.. she was sweet, funny, loved to do any thing for anyone in need.. our town is a much better place through all the things that she accomplished in her lifetime .. she really cared about the people that came through her doors at the Mansfield Sr. Center.. she always had a smile and always made time to talk with each and everyone of them.. we were all family.. my heart breaks for her family that she has left behind.. she has gained her wings, we will miss you Georgina... πŸ’•πŸ˜‡πŸ’•
