Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. She meant so much to so many people. I remember her so well both from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and from Kennestone Hospital. Both at church and at the hospital, I heard her advice on doing the right thing for other people. I saw her take care of many patients with very difficult medical conditions. She did her work with great skill, knowledge and compassion. Mrs. G meant a lot to our family and we will remember her fondly. She lived a life of great importance. You are all in our prayers. Sincerely, Wesley McCoy

I have such fond memories of Mrs. G. I worked at Kennestone and would ride to work with Mary Stewart and Mrs. G. I loved her dearly. May God bless her children in this time of sorrow. We will see her again one day.
