Mary Lou, Micheal and families: So very sorry to hear about your mom. I have plenty of memories of Georgie from Seeley's Bay R. H. She definitely kept me on my toes with her humor and her stories were always interesting. She was a pleasure to meet and a great lady. She loved her family and enjoyed your visits. She loved bragging about Rory. My thoughts are with you.
