    Thank you, dad. What a journey life was with you...moments of heartache, anguish, searching...moments of laughter, generosity and highspeed fun! My heart is tender with memories as I look back as an adult. I am so grateful your struggle to find peace and happiness in the things or people of this earth ran empty and you found what you needed in your Savior, Jesus. In the end, you found love and you loved me and all who allowed you into their hearts. I miss you.

    Goodbye for now brother George. You carried a good heart through life and finally found peace and happiness in your faith and in your marriage to Alice. I remember your work ethic and especially your never failing sense of humor. You are, and will be, missed.

    George was always a delight to be around! Lighthearted and kind. His gentle spirit and special smile will be missed. Tucker brought out a spark in George and it was so fun to see him bring Tucker on his official business at the community center ;) Thinking of you and family and knowing that your faith in our Loving God will carry you through times of grief. VIRTUAL HUGS!
