A 93-year-old woman identified as Georgia May Adkins who recently passed away warmed hearts on social media with a request she asked her family to put into her obituary.
Adkins, who died on September 28 after suffering a stroke, asked that voters be urged in her obituary not to vote for Donald Trump during the presidential election.

"I read an obituary today that said the deceased had hoped to live long enough to see Trump get voted out of office. Sadly they didn’t make it that long but let’s make it happen."
