Eulogy for Friend

Georganna's admirers--and that's everyone who knew her--savor the mile we walked with her. Each of us has special incidents we want to recount. We have compiled a few of these memories that we believe best illustrate the unique personality of our dynamic friend.

Georganna was always determined, sometimes outraged, but rarely sad.

Enjoy these stories. As long as we have them in our hearts, we have George.

At the Team Spirit Leadership Conference George roomed with Heather, Tatum and Erica. She was always the First one up--usually by 4:00a.m. BUT she was always the LAST one ready!

On the French Trip to Louisiana George slept in those teal green, silk pajamas whiles everyone else slept in shorts or sweats! But that was George. She dressed up for school every day like she was going off to New York. Shawn always said George was in a time warp because he was wearing clothes from another generation!

George was the "Debate Queen"--that's what everyone called her. On the bus trip to Louisiana George climbed over the seats to view her opinion on at least five different issues! She would never back down.

When George started to go off about an issue during class or on the weekend, Ryan, Shawn, and all the guys would hiss (like the wind was blowing). Georganna would just roll her eyes at them and smile.

Georganna loved to read. Everyone always teased her about those "smut" novels! She could read a different one every day.

During Flag Core practice Georganna's freshman year, Katrina accidentally hit Georganna on the head with her flag--but Georganna really got upset and chased Katrina around the entire school with the flag pole!

Georganna loved chocolate--and she'd get sooo hyper when she ate it! Taco Bell was also her favorite. She could be found there every weekend with different friends.

Kenny Samples was bored one day and went through George's purse. He bit her drivers license and credit cards and actually left teeth marks on them. George often showed them to her friends and laughed about it.

One night Tatum, Kristie, Daren, Micah, and George went on a yard-rolling spree. Amanda pulled into her driveway as they were rolling her yard. They were running off and George started picking up the rolls of toilet paper. She said, "We might can use them later!" She had also insisted on color coordinating the paper before it was bought!

Eulogy for Friend Essays - Eulogy for Friend Yesterday, as Martin's friends poured into town, I was struck by how many distinct sets of friends he had. Family, skaters, punks, his Swampland posse, his boys and his girls, Professors, colleagues, Ann Arbor friends, Chicago friends, cyberspace friends who'd never met him "in the flesh"... Trying to walk down the street with him was an exercise in frustration, as Martin's fans flocked to him like the Pied Piper. He was so much, to so many.

Eulogy for Friend Essays - Eulogy for Friend Richie, Richie, Richie… I met Rich at freshman orientation at Lynchburg College in August, 1975. My freshman orientation packet said that I was to meet with my group at my assigned table in the dining hall. After getting my dinner, I found the right table and sat down across from another freshman. There was no one else at the table. I think it was fate. After what seemed like a couple of minutes, a conversation started. We talked about our hometowns. He told me that his family lived in Manassas, but that most of his life was spent in Naples, Italy....   [tags: Eulogies Eulogy] 914 words

Eulogy for Friend Essay example - Eulogy for Friend I'd like to say a few words of tribute to this special man, from me and on behalf of other close friends of his. When he heard the news of Alan's death, a mutual friend and colleague noted poignantly that Alan was a man that was non-judgmental. Alan accepted people largely for what they were and for who they were. Alan was a man without prejudice. His many friendships crossed the barriers of social position and educational background. And his spirit, his generosity, his warmth also reached through barriers of race and cultural background....   [tags: Eulogies Eulogy] 1316 words

Essay about Eulogy for Friend - Eulogy for Friend The last time I saw my friend Kevin, was at his wedding in 1997. He was always a late bloomer, (Kevin had been the last of my friends to date), and we were all delighted to see him married for the first time at 44. After years of delay and false starts, his marriage to Diana gave us all the sense that he was finally on his way. I remember the first time I saw him, entering my second grade class, gangly even then, all arms and legs and elbows akimbo. Years later, those elbows became sharp weapons as we played basketball for hours on end....   [tags: Eulogies Eulogy] 1594 words

Eulogy for Friend Essays - Eulogy for Friend Three days ago I was working on a lecture dealing with a prominent figure on the French literary scene who happens to be a Sephardic Jew. He pictures the Jew as essentially a wounded man, one racked by his Jewishness. The world for him is a desert, and God is enwrapped in silence. For him the keynote is exile, the stuff of his writing a kind of brave despair. The news of Hays's death broke into my thoughts on this, and it occurred to me that his philosophy of life could be expressed by reversing this writer's terms....   [tags: Eulogies Eulogy] 775 words

Eulogy for Friend Essay examples - Eulogy for Friend My name is Deborah, and I’m one of Ron’s many friends. Karen asked me to share about Ron from a biker’s point of view. At many memorial services, eulogies are sort of like fish stories. Mean people are suddenly remembered as good-natured, self-centered people as generous, sinners as saints. Positive traits are exaggerated, negative ones swept under the rug. But today, it’s not necessary to stretch the truth. With Ron, what you saw was what you got. He refused to play games with people, and he was adamant that he “didn’t have time for nonsense” like politics and petty disputes....   [tags: Eulogies Eulogy] 1054 words

Whenever you saw Georganna, you saw her with that great big cloth bag. It probably weighed more than she did.

Georganna's dream store was The GAP. She always wanted to work there. When she called from Jax State to tell her Mom that she had gotten there O.K., her Mom told her that the GAP had called that night. Georganna called the GAP long distance and they told her she had got the job. She was so excited.

Asim and Georganna were counselor's aides during the seventh period. They were stuck together in a little room every day. Asim said, "I came to know her very well during the long conversations we had. We talked about everything, and that is what I'll miss the most. Her dreams, her ideas, her likes and dislikes, her caring nature, and her thoughts are now a part of me."

We all have our special memories of Georganna. She remains a part of us and will never be forgotten.
