Wednesday, September 18, 2019Words are not enough. I was lucky enough to know Georgia when I was a young girl and best friends with her granddaughter Stephanie. I was always amazed by her beauty and kindness. Many years later I was lucky enough to meet her again and the same feelings came back. She raised beautiful, strong women and her presence will forever be felt.

Wednesday, September 18, 2019My mother, Marion Mackey Jack, is 94 yrs old and graduated with GEORGIA MOYSE KARA in 1942 when Tampa had only 2 high schools, Plant and Hillsborough. Both Georgia and Marion had little sisters, two of whom became very close friends with each other, Shirley Mackey Bryan and Teeny Moyse Abernathy who also graduated from Hillsborough High two years after their big sisters did. These were four smart, beautiful, and fun loving friends who married, had children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren. All four amazingly lived into their 90's, with both Teeny and Georgia leaving us just this summer. My mother Marion, named me Georgia after her good friend and told my father, George, I was named after him too. I was told to call my mother's friend, Aunt Georgia, out of respect. I have always had fun with my name and to this day, being teased as a child with the 'Georgie Porgie" song, later as a teen being called every other state in the south, "Hey, Alabama", etc. I imagine Georgia Kara had similar experiences. And as Shakespeare said, "What's in a name?" Well, a lifetime of loving can be attached to it, if we care about family as obviously Georgia Kara did. Her daughter Sharon is older than me, but I am sure she and her brother Mike, heard many of the same stories about their mom's teen and young adult years that my sister, Amber and I did because our moms were intertwined. Even though they did not live close enough in their older years to make visiting easy, no one forgot the gift of their friendship. Our whole family wishes to express our most sincere sympathy to Sharon and Mike and all of your mom's descendents. You are all proof that her life here mattered and her love will continue in the next life to affect all who went before her and who come after. Much love to you, Aunt Georgia

Wednesday, September 18, 2019YOU ARE THE MATRIARCH OF OUR FAMILY You have boundless energy and an inquiring mind. You can be fearless and outspoken when you feel necessary but you know how to keep a confidence and we know we can trust you to always have our best interest at heart whether we agree with you or not. You are a force to be reckoned with "MOTHER NATURE". You have a way of relating to everyone you meet from a small child to a teenager to your peers. A true and trusted friend to many. You have grace and poise and are a true "lady". Your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren all love and admire you. You are blessed. I love you, Sharon My mother wrote in a note that "she was blessed and her life was complete"
