So sorry for your loss. George was an amazing man. I remember a smile on his face no matter what was going on. My children said how he approached them with words of wisdom. I thought that was a memory to share with you. He will be sadly missed by all and if there is anything you need or just want to talk I’m here. Sending my love and prayers

I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God’s sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.
