    Georgie Story. Georgie takes Phyllis to the Amtrak Station for a trip to Chicago. Georgie gets on the train to make sure Phyllis is situated. The train takes off with Georgie on board, her car is running with the dog inside. Good old Bob has to go to Macomb to retrieve Georgie. Georgie will be missed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Mom and I were so shocked and saddened to learn of Georgie’s passing. She was such a sweet person, always so pleasant and friendly with a smile on her face (just like her Momma)! No words seem adequate but we are sending our sincere condolences to Phyllis and the entire family. Be assured we will keep you in thought and prayer during this difficult time. Rest in peace Georgie—Heaven gained another Angel!
