Dear Mary, Brett and Heather~ I am very sorry to have learned of George's passing. I have fond memories of SC and the time I spent getting to know George. He was a wonderful man with great stories I remember listening to until late at night. But most of all I remember how he loved each of you very much. May his love continue to live in each of your hearts and always know he will always be with you in your thoughts.

Mary , Brett and Heather - I am so sorry to hear about George's passing. He was a true friend and will be greatly missed. I always enjoyed spending time with George and hearing about his many experiences. The hunt club will never be the same without George being there to "watch" over all of us.

Dearest Heather, we send our prayers and love to you for your loss. Though I did not know your father, I know your love for him was abundant and beautiful. I pray the celebration of his life is joyous and full of love. God bless you and yours.

Brett, I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. The way you spoke of him, I always could tell he meant alot to you and that you were very close. If people are truly a reflection of their parental influences, then your Dad must have been an outstanding man, as it shows in the amazing son he loved so much. I regret I never had the opportunity to meet him. Many prayers and hugs to you and your family during this time.
