I have wonderful memories of Mrs. Freels and Mr. Freels from long ago when I went to Karns High with Gary. She was a lovely women and mother. They both welcomed Gary’s friends into their home. She always had a yummy snack ready for us!!! It is a really difficult experience losing a mother. Gary- thinking of you.

So Sorry to hear of Granny Georgia's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. She will be greatly missed. There was so many great memories of Granny from stories, to recipes, cooking lessons, to shopping for fresh produce at Pratt's Country Store, Halloween party with hay rides and working along side of her daily for 12 years. I was truly blessed to have gotten to know this wonderful lady and her family. Rest in peace sweet Granny Georgia..
Love LeeAnn & Sean Irwin
