Jim and I will never forget Dr. Barger...George to us, as we were friends of the family thanks to Beth! We are honored that George married us on August 22, 1970, in a special service at All Saints Episcopal. He was truly a man of the world, and had such a positive impact in our lives.

How dearly loved George was! A truly sweet man who was a help and inspiration.

Such a lovely service today--David and I were honored to be part of the music that was so important to Fr. George. We have fond memories of seeing many operas with Helen and George in Omaha and Des Moines, also late night jazz after the opera!

Such a dear man, we all will miss him. His kindness and dedication will always be remembered.
