I'm sorry for your loss. May the true God of comfort, comfort those mourning and bind up the brokenhearted.

my earliest memory of LG was when visiting his family in the 'Boro. He carved a mask of a thoroughly devoured watermelon's rind in the garage on a miserably rainy day to entertain his younger sisters and myself. About eight decades later the last memory of him was visiting with him, Pat and Anna before the kickoff on TV for UGA's appearance in the Rose Bowl.He was always thinking of others, entertaining and interesting. He will be missed on this earth. the Peacocke family
