    Thoughts and Prayers to the family during this trying time. Georgina was a wonderful lady. Anytime I was not in the best of a mood she would do or say something that would make me smile and make my day 100% better. She was always cracking jokes with us here at Crestview and it made everyone’s day! She is going to be dearly missed. Rest in Peace Georgina.

      Dear Glissman Family,

      Our deepest sympathy to you all for the loss of your Mom! It saddens me to think that most of our old neighborhood parents are all gone. What a great time that was! I would of loved to have come in person to share my condolences to you all but Bob was in the hospital and I didn’t find out that she passed away until after Christmas! So our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
