Not sure what to say?

Coach use to use my old bird dog to hunt quail when he was the high school football coach. The last time I saw and spoke to him, he was reading the paper at the restaurant in Columbia during one of fishing trips to Gum Neck. He was a good and fair person and I appreciated his friendship. Forgive me for posting late, but I have just learned he has passed and I am truly, truly sorry.

Mrs. Stella and family,
We are so sorry to hear about Mr. George. We always looked forward to seeing him at sweet corn harvest. Our deepest sympathy and prayers for strength are with you.

Ms.Stella,We are so sorry to hear about Mr. George, he will always hold a spot in our hearts.We remember all the good times we had with him in the restaurant. Our Prayers go out to you and the family.

GOOD-BYE COACH. YOU GAVE ME CONFIDENCE IN MYSELF THAT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY SUCCESS AS AN ADULT. I HAVE MISSED YOU AND STELLA OVER THE YEARS. I FINALLY MADE CONTACT WITH YOU TWO OVER THE PHONE WHILE I WAS A TRUCK DRIVER. I ENJOYED ALL THE CONVERSATION WITH STELLA BECAUSE COACH WAS FISHING.
