    Geneva will be missed by so many. She was the best "step mom" to my son Eric for last 9 years. Every life she touched felt better just knowing her. I know how her love for life and her laughter was so infectious. I will miss that the most. My love reaches out to Hal, Eric and all of her friends and family. Know she is out of pain and suffering.

    Dan, David and Janie, Rick and I are so sorry to hear about Geneva. She was such a sweet and special lady. I'm grateful I had the chance to get closer to her in our adult years, beginning when she came to Tim and Kaitie's wedding with Mother and continuing through the years. Grateful that she's out of any suffering and will be reunited with Lyle again. Rick and I are so sorry we can't be there in person, but hope you know we'll be there with you in spirit. We'll be praying for you and your families. Our love to you all.
