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.
