I had the pleasure of spending a year and a few months with this wonderful, beautiful woman. In the year we spent talking, laughing, eating, and enjoying each other's company, I've learned so much about myself. She had opened my eyes to the beauty and wonder this life has to offer. She always would tell me, enjoy life while I can. Make everyday count. I know she sure did. She was the greatest person I've met "on the job". She became more than a resident, she became a friend. I love you sweet sweet Genevieve and will miss you.
