I was very sad to hear of Georgia's death. Georgia had a kind and understanding way about her. I also remember trips from Iowa when I was younger to visit Randall & Georgia and the kids. I have a lot of great memories of those times that I will never forget!

So sorry to hear of Georgia's death. Just a couple of weeks ago, mom (Audrey Heim) received a birthday card from Georgia. Mom was very happy to have received the card and we reminisced over all the fun we had visiting in Missouri and when Randall and Georgia came to Iowa. I have many fond memories of trips to Lamar and Monet when I was younger and the visits to the farm. Georgia was always generous and welcoming. My sympathy to you all.

Dear Grace and the Heim siblings,

My sincerest condolences on the loss of your mom. I had the pleasure of meeting her many years ago when she and your dad visited Los Angeles.

My thoughts are with you at this time.
