Memories Timeline


  1. I will miss my coffee breaks with Geana- I will cherish all the times we shared together.May GOD and all the angels above shower us with grace and love. GOD bless our family.

  2. Sorry to hear about the loss of Mrs. Worley. Death touches everyone and be assured that Jehovah God is with you in your time of need. ‘Throw your burdens on Jehovah, and he himself will sustain you.’ (Psalms 55:22; Psalms 83:18) I hope this comforts her family and friends in their time of need.

  3. I never considered my aunt GeGe as my aunt nor Frank as my uncle. From earliest memories they were always there taking care of me as a child of their own. I hope the family knows all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Godspeed GeGe, we love you.

    Manuel & Kena Alonso, Chris & Brenna
