This Obituary Has 3 Condolences

  1. My favorite memory of George was at a barn dance many moons ago. I believe hosted by Fred and Kathy. We danced holes in our boots that night. He was authentic and gentle. We’ll say a prayer for you. God Bless.

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  3. We are so sorry to hear of George’s passing. We met him when my Mom and Dad moved to Winslow Court. He was one of their first friends there. They ended up sitting together for meals everyday. When my Dad died… he remained friends with my Mom Bonnie. Rest in Paradise George…
