We want to express our sincere sympathy to George and the family after the passing of Jodie.  During the past year she had fought a tough battle in her illness while suffering greatly as she maintained her strong faith.  The Lord’s blessing will always continue for her and he will give comfort to the family during their grief.

I am sad to hear of Jodei’s illness and now passing.  She introduced herself and welcomed me as a neighbor with a bouquet of flowers a few years ago when I moved beside her and George.  They were both pleasant, jovial and helpful neighbors.  I was blessed to have them as neighbors and friends.  My sympathy to each of you as you navigate the journey of grief.
