Not sure what to say?

George was a "character". It seemed that his goal in life was to work hard till you die, treasure friends, and help anyone anytime. He was thorough with any job he did and always did more than he was assigned. During the times I was completing employee forms with George in the E.R., he immediately began telling me how his injury was minor and that he would be going back to work right away. Once, George and I were in the hallway looking at the Tree of Life which is on the wall...

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. It was a pleasure to work with George at the HNW Hospital who always kept positive attitude. I am terribly sorry for your lose.
-From Mr. & Mrs. Moore

I was deeply saddened by the news of George's passing. We were coworkers at Houston Northwest Medical Center. Words cannot express our sorrow at this time. Our Plant Ops team will not be the same without him. My heartfelt condolences to the entire family.

You were a wonderful, respectful man that I have always been honored to be your daughter. I wish we would have lived closer too but it just never happened that way. Even though our distant in miles we lived apart, it was like we lived right next door to one another. I'll miss you dearly Daddy. I love you with all my heart and soul. I'll see you on the other side. With eternal love, your daughter, Cathy Jane Barnes

You were the kindest soul I've been blessed to know in my entire life. You gave the best example of what a man should be and have been admired and loved dearly ever since I can remember. Your positive expressions and happy-go-lucky attitute have helped me through many of life's difficult situations. I miss you Grandpa, but am happy your soul is at peace without the physical pain your body was in. Katelyne Grace and I will love you forever, and am sure you're happily fishing in...

Mr George as I called him was a wonderful man. His presence at the hospital will be greatly missed. He always had a smile on his face and was always happy. I remember the times he called asking for a good cup of coffee because he always liked our coffee better. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Dear Aunt Cookie. We were very sad when we heard that Uncle George had passed away. He was a very generous and kind man, and we wish that we could be there for his viewing and funeral. We are so thankful for the many times that we spent with the two of you over the years, including our wedding day. Uncle George has a special cameo in our wedding video and we will always cherish it and remember him. Love, Wendy and Jim Yeomans

George Barnes was a very strong presence in our lives growing up. I remember him always smiling and being happy. He was one of my mom's best friends, always calling and checking on her. To his children: I am very sorry for your loss, I know that George loved his children. To his wife: Ms. Kathy, I am truly sorry for your loss. I know you have lost your best friend. My prayers are with you.
