It has been such a joy to fellowship with Geneva these past 6 years at Williamsburg. She always came to Bible Study to have church. My Wednesday mornings have not been the same since she has been unable to attend. To the few members of the family that I have met, and to the many others I did not, heaven gained a saint Tuesday night
