O’ Tender and sweet was the Master’s voice
As He lovingly called to thee
Come over the line, it’s only a step
I’m waiting my child for thee
On Tuesday, August 25, 2020, God called home to eternal rest our beloved Genalle Marie Stokes in Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center. She was born on November 4, 1988, daughter of Roger Piggott and the late Geneva Stokes.
