“I wish I'd known Georgia better. Our paths crossed when she was caring for her mother, Tiny, my cousin. I last talked to her at the Gordon family reunion in August. Georgia was the sort of person--kind and supportive--especially valued as a friend and associate. She will be sorely missed by her fellow kin in the Gordon clan.”

“My deepest sympathies to Georgia's family. I worked with Georgia on L&D from 2001 until her retirement. She was a sweet, quiet lady that I was very fond of. When I needed to problem solve something for the secretaries, I would always trust that Georgia would know the correct way to get it done. She was also open to the changes that we implemented with the computers. I am very sorry for your loss. ”
