Condolence & Memory Journal

To the Jack Shearer family,

I was sorry to learn of Georgia passing on to her glory. I will always fondly remember her and John who had such wonderful open personalities when met, always taking interest in one's family and sharing their love of life.

May God hold your family in His loving embrace as you share such wonderful memories of a great mother and grandmother.

Jack & Georgia lived two doors west of us at Lake Lotawana for about 18 years. We've been friends for many years. We enjoyed them so much and they were very generous with us. They were both very proud of their sons and their families. Georgia can rest now. We'll miss her.

Bill & Wanda
