George you have always been a awesome person. You loved being with and around people. You where more like a cousin to me because we shared the same first cousins. I know they welcome you with open arms. Iva will know you are safe and with some of our cousins who also loved you dearly.

My memory of George. A caring and loving family man. He adored his wife and it showed in many ways. He was happiest when he was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. Even though my husband and I were not close family members, he opened his arms to us and welcomed us into his home with kindness. What a gentleman he was. We will miss you George. But we know you are with Jesus wrapped in His arms pain free and at peace. Good bye for now but we will all meet again in Glory.
