    George was probably born with a smile on his face. If you were ever feeling down, just spend a few minutes with George. His contagious smile and compassionate expression were simply a reflection of his loving heart.

    We are happy and thanksful God brought the two of you together to share your lives for 42 great years. We saw George as a gentle man who freely gave unconditional love to you and the whole family. How lucky all of you were to have him in your lives and we are so sorry for your loss of this special man. God loved you both enough to put you together, such a blessing He gave to you and George.
