Dear Family of Gena Sarley, We are saddened by the news of Genas passing but know she is now in the Heavenly Kingdom. What a beautiful woman she was. She was a joy to know. She was Dans secretary at Business Interiors. She was so competent. She was such an important member of that business. Her good cheer and caring personality lifted everyone up. We have not seen her in a number of years but will always remember her as the delightful woman she was. Also her Christmas gift to us was the best. No one could make better fudge. You have our greatest sympathy. Fondly, Dan and Jeanne Daniher
