    Aunt Genene, you sure will be missed! The first time that I met you and your daughters in 2005, you and your daughters always had open arms. I will never forget the talks that we have had in your living room when you were well, and when you were in your bedroom after you got sick. You were such a loving woman! I will miss you and love you. Such a wonderful woman at a young age to go. God has gained another angel.

  13. Kelly Ward Zunnurain says:

    To Leonard and family. I am so very sorry for your loss of Genene. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you.

  14. Debi Pitcock Davis says:

    “Perhaps they are not stars but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy”

    To me this saying says it all for lost and empty feelings we have when we lose important parts of us. Meg, your mother gave us a wonderful girl to enjoy- as a adopted like daughter and best friend to Chastity. She will be with your son and daughter as a guardian angel now.

    We are here for you all.

    “We never touch people so ever lightly, that we never leave a trace of our selves”

    Genene was a great mom and she had a kind soul.
