Geri Geri, Chuck, and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can always remember coming to your house sitting and talking while eating and snacking over sweets that I would bring. I have such fond memories of us going to church together and listening to you sing in the choir and in the quartets. Zody had such a pretty alto voice. Both my boys loved coming up and visiting with the entire family when they were in high school. May you rest in peace dear sweet soul. With Love and Sympathy, Dorothy King.

I want to keep this light, but I also want it to be real. I will start by saying that I love you. I love you.

Love. Love is a thing that I wish you had enough faith in yourself, while living, to believe that those in your family could love one another, and spend time with one another, while also having enough love in their hearts to still love you, and want to spend time with you. Love is limitless. It is.
You were good at so many things. Your laugh and smile were both beautiful, and infectious. You had a natural charisma about you that made people just want to be included in your special orbit. If someone had, even a moment in your favor, that felt like so much, and such a big thing. We all wanted to be on your top shelf, Nana.

I hope your reunion was a grand and happy one.

Again, I love you. I will continue to talk to you and pray for you.
