Ponte Vedran of the Week: Georganna Walker

    By Willow Logue

     

    At the risk of sounding repetitious, if you don’t know Georganna Walker you should. When she first become my neighbor, I would have made a fortune if I could have collected money for  every time someone said, “The Walkers are your neighbors! You will love them! They are amazing! I love them!”

    Seriously, I would be building on a triple lot on the boulevard – in cash! Fortunately, for me, it’s all true. Georganna and her family are kind, wonderful, smart, sweet, funny and good people. Their dog is pretty fab too, and their former dog, Pudge, will always hold a special place in our hearts. Meet Georganna…
