Dear George,

As a little girl who always spent every moment my grandparents, it was you who I would listen to on the radio. You made me fall in love with country music at a very young age. Your duets with Tammy Wynette are my favorite songs of all time. The memorial service held for you today was perfect. It made me realize all over again why I love this music and why I love you. Seeing Vince, Patty, Travis, and Randy made me really feel like I was there to experience this tribute to you and your life. Thank you so much for giving me this great love for country music. There is no other like it and there is none other like you. No one will fill your shoes or even come close. I know that you truly are at peace now and you are singing in the sky with the other greats that passed on before you. You are loved and missed greatly.

To George's family: Thank you so much for sharing with us the memorial service for this great man that we adored. He will be truly missed and I know his legacy will live on forever. I'm sure the rest of the opry members will see to that.

Love,
Erica Kalman

My heart is with all of George's family. I don't have a memory in my past that doesn't include him or his wonderful music. I remember sitting listening to my dad and grandpa playing guitars and singing George's songs. As we grew up we knew all his songs by heart, we would be riding in the car singing "Daddy Come Home" to my dad. Then as I got older my dad would play the guitar while him and my mom would sing George and Tammy's songs, then I learned to sing Choices with my dad playing the guitar. I wrote speeches about his life for school and blared his CD's while cruising up and down the main strip in Muscatine, IA. I remember getting caught at the age of 10 video taping his performance at the Mississippi Valley Fair. When I had my oldest child at her first George Jones concert I made my husband take his shirt off so I could change her diaper in the stands at the Iowa State Fair. My mom bought my dad a Martin D42 guitar that looked like George's for their anniversary before she died. George's music played at my own mom's funeral, when I was 15, and seemed to be the only thing that could bring my dad back to me. I had my senior pictures taken with my George Jones' things that I had collected threw the years, while antiquing with my parents. For my graduation present, from my now husband, he took me to Nashville to see Geroge at the Ryman Auditorium. When I graduated from nursing school I took my dad to Tennessee to see you perform at the Ryman again. While I was pregnant with my second child we took my dad to see George perform at the Old Threasures Reunion in Iowa, I sat in line talking with an older gentleman for 10 hours. Just last November my dad called me and told me he had found a Martin D-41 GJ guitar in Davenport, IA, that night I called and purchased the guitar, which I had planned to take with me to Branson this year and see if Ricky or Bobby could have him sign it for me. I had the opportunity to go see George again in Juliet, IL and he still amazed me with the passion he had for his music and the respect he had for his fans. George will forever be in my heart and I will continue to play his amazing music and hopefully my children will grow to know the meaning of real country music. Now I think to myself how wonderful Heaven must sound.
