Dear Skip & Family Members,

My deepest sympathy on the loss of one of the most beautiful and giving people I have had the pleasure of getting to know. My relationship with Georgia began at Dr. Kennedy's office but quickly developed into a true personal friendship. Georgia was always smiling as she went about her work and was quick to tell a joke, relay an update about a family member or reprimand me for bad behavior. Georgia will be missed by all who loved and had the blessed opportunity to get to know her.

God Bless,
Dave Brinkley
