Geneva was the sweetest woman I ever met.
I loved seeing both your wonderful parents in Dr. Ulner's office. You're truly blessed to have had her with you so long.

Nana, you will be loved and cherished forever. Thank you for passing on your fabulous cooking skills to me! Loved watching you work your magic in the kitchen. I know there's a party going on right now in heaven and one heck of a family reunion!! Please give them all a "Mmmmmmmmmm...." from me! I was blessed to have a Nana like you, the perfect Angel for me. I Love You more than I can express.

Neva was such a gracious lady and a class act always so tastefully dressed.

My mother was in the Win-Some Sunday School class with Neva for many, many years. i would join them and actually became a member. After my mother's passing, Neva became somewhat of a "stand-in" mother to me.

I would have the ladies to my home for covered dish luncheons. Neva knew how much I loved her cooking and would also "bring a little extra" and leave for me. We would kid Mr. Croft about how much he enjoyed being the only man with all of the women. He would smile and his face would turn red....he was a jewel.

When I learned of her passing, a very strong sense of sadness came over me. However, I came to thank God for so enriching my life with knowing Neva. My most sincere condolences to her family.

Sandra, We have you in our thoughts and prayers. All parents should be as blessed with a daughter to take care of them like you did your parents. I'm glad that we were able to get Lois and Daddy down to see her. Lois was able to tell her she loved her and that it was okay to let go and go be with your Daddy. Neva is no longer suffering. We love you. Rick and Deb
