Geneva Mendoza Obituary

"Some glad morning when this life is over, I'll fly away.  To a home on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away. Just a few more weary days and then, I'll fly away. To a land where joy shall never end, I'll fly away.  I'll fly away, oh, Glory I'll fly away,  When I die, Hallelujah, by and by I'll fly away.
