My sympathy to George & all the family members. Weezie was special & one of a kind. Her eyes always made others around her more aware of her beautiful personality. God bless, Weezie.

We are so sorry George and family, Kathy, Denise & her family and I wish to express our sympathies to all your family, Weezie was such a nice person, I always remember talking to her at the church picnic every July, and she would always give me that big smile cause I always wore my straw hat with a bunch of flags on it, she'd always say I love your hat tho I couldn't see her the last few picnics I always told Amanda to tell her I said Hi, again we are so sorry.

George and the family:
For all the rest of us, You and Weezie have always been there. Because of the coronavirus many of us cannot reciprocate but be assured, you are all in our thoughts and prayers. May God grant her eternal rest.
