Precious Jody, Tonight we heard of George´s leaving for heaven, and our hearts hurt for you. We remember both of your kind spirits and your deep love for Jesus since our 20´s. We follow his Facebook sermons and he has given us such joy. Tonight, more of our treasure is in heaven. We are praying for our Lord to comfort you and strengthen you as only He can. God bless you beloved sister in Christ. Love, Steve and Dolly

We will always remember George as a man of God, a prayer warrior, kind and generous, always willing to help. While our hearts are deeply saddened at his passing we know that he is dancing and rejoicing before the Lord.
