Georgette Lucretia Burns Stout experienced the joy of life for seventy plus years ‘til her passing on February 23, 2018. She collected white stones to ever remind her of her many blessings during those years, too many to count.
Looking back, she would share from the words of Margery Williams from The Velveteen Rabbit, “What is REAL?” asked the rabbit… “Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair is loved off and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand…but once you are Real you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.”
A sincere but delayed THANK YOU for all your kindness over the past few months. I choose to have no service because the wonderful memorial last September for my husband Jim I considered to be for both of us since we are one.
Please take every opportunity to embrace and support Amy Stout, Kerry/Mitzi McConville, Evan, Logan, and Porter McConville, my “little” brother, Dwight Burns and family, and Jim’s sister Barbara Stout Simpson and family. Hugs to one another as good memories are shared.
Please no flowers, donations, etc.!!! You have done that so generously already
