I was so sad to hear of my aunt's passing. I know that she has had some health issues over the past few years and that now she is at peace and free of pain. My deepest sympathy to my cousin Tom and his family.

Tom and Vera;
It is with much love, affection and deepest sympathy we reach out to you. I only learned of Georgia's passing yesterday.
Darrel choked up as he read the obituary out loud.
Your parents' are some of the first I think of when I think on the Jeromesville Community of my childhood.
Accountability and commitment to Christ and to others.
Lives well lived.
With great love,
Kristina Rowland
