Dear Virginia, I'm sorry I couldn't attend George's memorial service, but I paid tribute to him, in the hospital where I work. I lead groups with seniors, and I told them how George's
many creative gifts were an inspiration to others; how he sang in
a bluegrass/gospel group, carved elaborate walking sticks, and made jewelry, in his 70's & 80's. He was certainly a man of many talents! I will
miss the sing-alongs that George loved so much. Most of all, Uncle George, I
will miss the sound of your voice: hearing the familiar "Hey Lis," when I call. I love you and Virginia, Lisa

George was the type of boy we kids in high school wanted to be like and as a man be had the same type of magnetism.

Virginia,
George was a great friend all through college. I value that friendship with you and him through all these years. Our prayers will be with you as we remember all the good times and blessings of having George in our lives.

Time can steal presence, but cannot erase precious enduring memories. One of the best for me, at Clarke, was George's Christmas solo at Newton First Baptist of "Away In A Manger". Thank you George.

No way to match the strength of his long hugs or firm handshakes There is a new guitar strumming in heaven.
