2 Timothy 4: 7

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."

We will always think of Aunt Geneva when reading the above verse. She was truly a gift from God and a blessing to our family. She will be greatly missed. Love always from your adopted nieces and nephews who loved you so much.

    Below is a message from "Joannie" at Cove Road Church of God, La Fayette, GA. 

Pastor James Brown told us about Sister Kenerson's passing.  I want to express my condolence to you and your family.  I know you will miss her.  I am happy for the privilege of spending time with Sis. Kenerson while she lived in La Fayette.  She brought joy to our lives and to our church services.  I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to speak with her several weeks ago and I was thrilled that she remembered me. 

She said, "Is this Joannie?" and  we spoke for several minutes. Only my family calls me "Joannie."   That's a fairly good indicator that we are in the family of God. I know she loves the Lord!  "You are in a "sweet rest," Mother Kenerson, with our Saviour.  Hope to see you 
at the roll call!"

"Earthly people are like the earthly man, and the heavenly people are like the heavenly man.  Just as we are now like the earthly man, we will someday be like the heavenly man."  I Corinthians 15:48-49.

Sincerely, Joan Hopkins, La Fayette, GA
