My Aunt Genevieve was a very special aunt to me, she was always so kind and loving!!! She and my mom (Alma "Sis" Rodden) were always such great friends. What an awesome lady and I am so honored to have had her in my life!!! I'm looking forward for when I see her, my Mom and all of my dear family, that have gone on before us, in Heaven.
I'll never forget our great times when we all lived in Wichita, Clifty, and then Bentonville. I couldn't wait for Aunt Genevieve, Uncle Glen, Glenda, and Ross to visit us, or for us to go visit them, when we were kids. When we lived at Clifty and they still lived in Wichita and they were coming to visit, I would wait by the window anticipating their arrival and I can remember Mom saying to me, "a watch-pot never boils!" We were so excited when they finally got there, it seemed like forever to me - lol!!!

I love you all and may God comfort, bless, and surround each of you with His love!!!
With Deepest Sympathy to my precious family,
Barbara Lynn (Rodden) Thompson
