Brother George was one of the most humble, kind hearted, hard working, and prayerful people I’ve ever met. He led by example and walked a good walk. I think about him daily and pray for his family and extended brothers family. He always had smile on his face and a kind word to brighten up my day. I am sure without a doubt that God has welcomed him into His arms saying, Well done, Faithful Servant.welcome Home. ❤
