Georgia Ann, Carolee, and George,

So very sorry to hear of your father’s passing. I remember fondly visiting your mom and him when I was a child. They and all of you made those visits part of my happy memories in childhood.

While your souls are heavy with grief be aware that those who hold a special place in their hearts for all of you will be keeping not just your father, but all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

All my love,

Punkin Bailey Lanzy
