My deepest sympathies. May the God of all comfort strengthen the entire family during this time of sorrow. Always remember that God keeps in his memory those whom we lose because they are precious in his eyes. (Psalms 116:15)

Taught with George for many years (20) at Southwest in the Science Dept. Always appreciated his calm demeanor and that little half-smile he would give when trying to understand why teenagers act the way they do - and who could forget "Daryl & Daryl" - from what I can gather he led a full life. God's peace and comfort to the family - George was an old and valued friend! David Lane
