Georgia was such a special lady. It was so special all those Sundays we shared a seat in church.. Although we have not been able to see her in several years, she still and always will be very special to us.

Ms Georgia’s service was beautiful, just as she was. I will always remember that once after she had lost most her sight, I spoke to her after service and, she, before I could tell her who I was, called me by name. Assuredly Jesus knows her name now as she sings at the throne. God bless and keep you all. Travel safely.
