    My Aunt Dolly was the most caring sweet soul I have ever known. When I talked to her it was always ” how are you doing” or asking about someone else’s health. She never mentioned her poor health. She cared so very much for others. Glad I got to go visit her a couple years ago. I talked to her on the phone just 3 weeks ago, and the last words I heard her say were “I Love You Too”! Fly high Sweet Aunt, you will be dearly missed by many. ❤😇

    Georgia and I played basketball for the Redheads in the early 60’s. She was tough on the court and I feel sure she was fighting to stay with her family. She is one of the few teammates that kept in touch with me. She is a true friend. We’ll see you when our expiration here. Your a very fine lady, Love you. Prayers for the family and friends.

    What a loss for your family. I haven’t seen Georgiana since I graduated high school, but because we played basketball together she was one of the people I remembered most. May God allow her to fly as high as she wants. I’m sure she will be missed by all who knew her.

    Georgia was a great person. She was a kind and talented person. The All American Red Head family loved her dearly. Rip my friend.
