Geneva "Cooter" Waren was a great lady! She was my great aunt, by marriage, and I will truly miss her. We often had conversations of her childhood and I always enjoyed her company. Halloween (her birthday) just won't be same; I'm going to miss celebrating with her. Her sudden death was a shock and a reminder of how fragile our time on Earth truly is.

When I heard of her passing all the memories of her came rushing back to me. She was always so sweet to me. Every time she saw me which was usually at mawmaws house on Saturday morning she would always slip me some spending money. She loved to talk to me about her life growing up in Mississippi. I will miss her offering me her cookies at christmas time. Love you cooter!! Jimmy
