Ms. P has made such a lifelong impact on myself and my family. She was so powerful and independent, yet had the kindest and most caring heart. Truly unmatched.

I spent many years at Countrywood where she was someone my parents could trust to watch over me. Something they are grateful for even to this day.

I remember going to her anytime I had a loose tooth, typing out lunch calendars for her, spending early mornings in her office before classes started, and many more memories with her that make me smile. I feel blessed to have known her throughout my formative years.

On the behalf of myself and my parents, we send our deepest condolences to Mr. Nick and the rest of the family.

Words can not express how much of a light in the world Ms. P truly was. My cousins Wendy, Adrian, Alex and I all went to Countrywood where she welcomed all of us with open arms. Even when I left Countrywood and went on to go to high school and college, I never stopped wondering how my life would’ve been so drastically different if it weren’t for her and her school.

Thank you for everything Ms. P, you will forever be missed. I will cherish every memory I have of you forever. My family and I will forever be grateful to you for helping us be the people we are today. 💙

I am deeply saddened to hear of Ms. Possnack's passing. She was a wonderful, caring woman. My love for learning started at Countrywood, and that can be credited to her work as an educator and administrator. Ms. P's impact was tremendous for me, as well as many of her other students.

My condolences go out to Nick and her extended family in this extremely difficult time.

I find myself struggling to put into words any kind of summary of how much Aunt George meant to me. I am gutted at the news of her loss and have been reflecting on her impact in my life. I have such vivid memories of visits as a child and realize just how much she imparted during those times. She taught me to ride horses, showed me how to cook tortillas right on the stovetop, sent me salsa in care packages at college, and toured me through the Hollywood Hills and Rodeo Drive. But above all, she ALWAYS showed me love, attention and genuine interest in what I was doing at whatever time in my life we were. Maybe that is what I will miss most - her amazing ability to convert those far-too-few visits into memories that made such a deep impact. Because she had a natural ability to share herself, but make you realize you were deeply important to her, too. I never doubted that about her and never will. I will miss her terribly and send love to Nicholas and all who were graced with having her in their lives.

My life is so much better to have known Ms. P. She was a passionate educator who played a significant role in the early education of my boys, Alistair, then Sebastian at Countrywood. We are heartbroken and very sad to hear of her passing.

We are sending our deepest condolences to Mr Nick and the rest of her family. May she Rest In Peace. 💐

Aunt Georgene, to me, represented kindness, calm, nurturing, and love. She radiated these qualities and when I was around her, I just felt happy. Our visits with her and Nicholas and Natalie when I was a kid are some of my favorite memories. I loved talking with her then, and later, as an adult, because she was a person who listened with her whole attention. I loved knowing she was in this world and am sad for this loss to her son, her larger family, the students she worked with over the years, and all of us who had the great privilege of having her in our lives.
