    Dear Elaine and family, our love and prayers are with you at this deeply sad time. We will always remember George for his kindness and generosity...he was an incredibly talented, gifted man, and was a great blessing to us. Mark treasures the trout lures and fishing tips George gave him for fly fishing on the Yellow Breeches. May God comfort you all with His perfect peace. Love, Mark and Tammy and family
