You will be missed Aunt Genny. ..prays to Steve Sharon and Sheila and family

So sorry for your loss. You have our deepest sympathy. Praying for your family.

Dear friend, Genny. I have the music you gave me many years ago when you told me you wanted me to play
for your funeral. Sadly, I am unable to provide that comforting music as I am in Florida. When I return to
Wooster, I will set out the music on my piano, and play it as I think of you. Rest in Peace, dear Genny.

Dear friend Genny. I have the music you gave to me many years ago when you told me you wanted me to play for your funeral. I still have the music, but cannot provide the comforting music for you as I am in Florida. When I return to Wooster, I will put the music on my piano, and play it as I think of you. Rest in Peace, dear friend.

I have so many fond memories of fun times with Genny that I will always cherish. She will be missed
Steve, Sharon , Sheila and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers and you are all loved. My deepest sympathy to all of you

The Triway Class of 1971 has you in their thoughts and prayers.
