On The Anniversary Of The Day You Went Away

Today's the anniversary
Of the day we lost you,
And for a time it felt as though
Our lives had ended too.

But loss has taught us many things
And now we face each day,
With hope and happy memories
To help us on our way.

At times we our filled with sadness
That you're no longer here,
Your influence still guides us
And we still feel you near.

What we shared will never die
It lives within our hearts,
Bringing strength and comfort
While we are apart.

We love you, miss you, and cherish you... always and forever.

"To the Jones Family,

My deepest condolences to you from Chicago, as I just learned this morning that Geneva passed away last year.  She was always kind and was a dear friend to my mom, Iola McGowan, who proceeded her in death.

May God continue to bless you and may her spirit live on through you."

"From James Childers,  CCM, PMP"

To the Jones Family,

Don't grieve for me for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone will stay that way,
I found that peace at close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I, too, will miss.

But not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life has been full, I've savoured much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief,
Lift up you hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now,
He set me free.

In prayer,

James Childers,  CCM, PMP"

"Dear Delano,Darrell,June & Rod, I was so very sorry to learn of my
friends departure, Your Mom & Dad  whom I shall never forget.
Life is but a stopping place,a pause in whats to be, a resting place along the way,We all were meant to learn some things,but never meant to stay......Our destination is a place far greater than we know. For some the journey's quicker, For some the journey;s slow.and when the journey ends Geneva will claim a great reward and find  an everlasting peace together with Rosial   and  The Lord. I pray that God will continue to bless your family and keep his arms around all of you. Rest in Peace my Friends."

"Geneva was a the sunshine on a cloudy day, every day.  If you ever walked into the DNC and was in the worst of moods, seeing Geneva's smiling face always changed your mood -- at least mine, most of the time. Her smile was geniune all day and every day.  Geneva will be missed by many for different reasons.  REST IN PEACE MY SISTER!!"

"My condolences to Darrell, June, Delano, Rod and the Jones Family. You are in my thoughts and prayers, as you remember and celebrate the life of your mom.  Be encouraged and know that she is resting in the arms of Jesus. I pray that God showers you with his love, comfort and peace during this difficult time. God is Love.

Isaiah 58:11 - The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs. . . You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

Isaiah 58:9 - Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

2 Thessalonians 3:16 - Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way"

"Geneva, had such a great,warm and welcoming personality.  During my days as Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party (1993 -1996) she helped make my attendance at the ASDC meetings smooth.  I will always remember with fond memories the trip to Greece that a group of ASDC delegates took in 94, Geneva was there to assist us in every way and always with that warm smile.  Geneva you will be missed, but your smile will be remembered forever."

"To the children and grandchildren of my sister Geneva:
Many moons ago Geneva adopted me as her sister and said "you are the sister I do not have."  Over the years, we have spent many sleepless nights talking all night when we traveled together with Ann Lansey. Geneva was an angel sent by God and an inspiration in the lives of many. She will be surely miss, but God felt her work on earth was done. Let's praise God for the wonderful memories. May our Lord comfort and give peace to each of you. She was a blessing to all who knew her."

"To the Jones Family and Friends,

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am sorry for your great loss.  I worked with your mom for six years, 1983-1989. She was a delight!  She was a warm, loving, giving, gentle woman. God blessed her.  She is with God now. I will think of her often.

"My heart goes out to June, Delano, Darrell and Rod, my cousins.  Although we are cousins, I have always called her Ms. Geneva. She was kind and so soft spoken. Ms. Geneva and Mr. Rosial were the reasons for my parents meeting.  Now they are all together again. As we were growing up our families spent a lot of time together and as we got older not so much, but the love for family was always there.  I just want to let you all know that I love you all and will keep your/our family in prayer."

"I light this candle in memory of Geneva, who was truly one of God's chosen angles sent down to embrace everyone around her. With her warm and friendly smile. Geneva was my inspiration doing my time at the DNC. In life, everyone needs that one person they can share the most secretive and interment things with, and that's who Geneva was to me. She loved her family with all her heart. I know that Geneva has gone on to prepare a place, so that once we are all joined together again in that eternal life we will feel the presence of the Lord there to embrace us. Geneva will have everything prepared, for that's what she was so good at. That's what type of spiritual worrier she was.To the family- may you find comfort in knowing that your Geneva is at peace, and  among all of her family and friends who went on to prepare a place for her. I know that she was welcomed with a smile and open arms.

Peace and Blessing."

"Geneva was so helpful to me when I was on the DNC. I did not know much about the organization worked, and she helped me navigate it all. She was so kind and patient. Her number was the only number I knew there. I will definitely miss her."

This tribute was added by Monica Henderson on 23rd June 2014

"Her Journey's Just Begun,

Don't think of her as gone away - her journey's has just begun, life holds so many facets - this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing that we could know today; how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched...for nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much.

In times of tears remember the laughter.
In times of sadness remember the smiles.
In times of loneliness remember all you shared.

Hope it helps you to know you'll always have those warm, loving memories forever.  My heart and prayers go out to you and your family; may God give you the strength and peace to stay strong!

Loving thoughts from the Henderson Family!

Be Blessed!!"

"We sometimes take for granted those sources of spiritual strength in our lives. Geneva was one of those people for me. Every day, for four years, she passed by my desk. And in each of those moments of greeting, there was a pause from the shallow stressors of the day, a moment of joy to remind ourselves of our own humanity and what matters.

Once, clearly distracted, she got my name wrong and called me “Patrick,” and I just winked. It became something of a running joke between us. Geneva was someone who found joy among the storms of fearful and insecure people we encounter in our lives. That joy is her gift, and she shared that gift liberally and generously. And I thank her for it."

"Geneva was so friendly and helpful to me as a new ASDC member from Oregon the past year and assisted me in preparing me for a trip to Taiwan. You must be very proud of the many lives she has influenced and her years of service to the Democratic Party. In the short time I knew her she was unfailingly warm and welcoming to me.

I know she will be deeply missed by the ASDC community.

"An Angel

An angel lived among us,
A gift from God above.
She showered us with kindness
And shared with us her love.

A contagious laugh and a smile so bright
You were so beautiful in everyone’s sight
An angel came down and took you by the hand
It may be many years until we understand

She cherished every moment
With the man who was her life;
They now walk together hand in hand
Into eternal life.

She loved her children and grandchildren dearly,
Each one a different way,
Nestled close within her heart.
Though, now, she’s far away.

She’s gone to live with Jesus.
But, she’s here with us, today,
Smiling down on every one of us,
Rejoicing and telling us it will be O.K..

We love you momma! You will be sadly missed."
