Though I am unable to attend, please know everyone is in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you to those who have helped mom make it through this trying time and please keep her in your prayers as she has cared for Grandma non stop for years. I will always miss the cinnamon rolls, peanut butter cookies, and various other baked goods grandma used to make. I will always have the memories of stealing her slippers, tickling her feet and making her show me her “teeth”!! Wish I could be there. Leaving behind a dynasty of 5 generations and growing each year. Now gone to be with Papa, never to be forgotten, we shall all be together again someday. Godbless…
Thank you Brian, Grandma would understand about you not being able to be here.
What great memories you have of her.
Mrs. Weaver was a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Godspeed, Mrs. Weaver
Hello. Nellie (Counahan) Weaver was my grandfather Ralph Genter’s cousin. Her mother Cora (Genter, …) Counahan was my great-grand aunt. Thank you for sharing the stories about her. I am working on the genealogy of my Genter family and would like to learn more about her family. Any information would be greatly appreciated. If anyone would like to contact me please write to [email protected].
