Not sure what to say?

Mr. Meeks was the teacher you never forgot. He was the role model you aspired to be like. Many years have gone by since he was my Civics teacher at Ben Franklin. I was so happy that my brother (who also had Mr. Meeks as a teacher at Ben Franklin) and I ran into him, his wife and what I imagine was their granddaughter at King Cone last July.

I share the heartbreak of all who were graced to have known George.
I met him when he debuted as an exceptionally talented student teacher during my senior year of high school. That same year, he entrusted me with making his wedding ring, a project I treasured primarily because of his trust in me. I had the great delight of sharing a reunion with George and Miriam a few years ago and was deeply heart-warmed to find how beautifully their life and family together had grown.
