Geneva was loved dearly by everyone she encountered, and she never met a stranger. she was a "Plain Jane", but she loved doing word puzzles and having long, loving conversations with her grandson, Larry, Jr. She enjoyed the outdoors and would sit out under the tree for hours, except when her soap operas, Jeopardy, The Price is Right, or Wheel of Fortune was on TV. She was a loving person and confidant to many, no matter what time day or night. She will truly be missed.

"God Knew Best!"

I won't question Him. Through the tears of sorrow and despair,

We must know that He makes no mistakes.

We have to cherish the memories and hold on to them.

As I kiss your cheek, to say "see you later",

The times you made me laugh, the times you made me cry,

you yelled, and you showed me the love of a grandmother.

I will always cherish you! Rest eternally my sweet Nana. I will love you always!

-Your O'Mar
