CARPENTER -- Georgi Carpenter ascended into heaven September 7, 2004. Sweet Georgi Carpenter. Who delighted in every aspect of life. An impish grin, full of mischief, that unmistakable laugh, and a heart of pure gold. How she loved her precious Camille and her precious Caroline. And oh, how she loved her Bill. Georgi created a special bond with each friend she made, and there are hundreds. Tears will be shed, but you can't help but laugh too, as you think of one special memory, followed by another and another. God blesses us once in great while with the likes of Georgi Carpenter. Her life was filled with good. Please take a little of that goodness she shared with you, and pass it on to someone else, asking in return only that they do the same each time as well. In this way, the gift of Georgi Carpenter will last forever.
