My Dear Neighbor and Ole Friend, I have lost a sister. I will always cherish all the adventures we shared in Christmas Town, Colonial Williamsburg, James Town, and all the many restaurants we have gone to for lunch. Going to church with you for so many years and served on the Board of Directors for our community. The list is endless and my heart hurts today, but I know you are no longer suffering and I know you are now Light and Love. You never really knew it, but you were my best friend. I will sincerely miss you and all our talks, walks, lunches, visits, and laughs together. It was an honor knowing you and I will sincerely miss you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for sharing just a small part of your life with me. ~Brad (1201 Buoy Ct – Suffolk, VA). [Sending you peace – Love, Brad & Ray … Chloe and Cullen too]
Cousin by marriage; Friend by choice. I will miss you.
Georgeanne was a dear friend and a healer for us for 10 years. Sadly, I am unable attend the memorial service today. Therefore I will hold a private vigil at 2 PM and I invite anyone who can’t attend the memorial service to join me in the ethers to honor and celebrate Georgeanne’s life and contributions to the world.
In Loving Gratitude,
