    To the family, I am so very sorry you lost George. I know he will be greatly missed and leave a big hole in your family. I will pray God comforts you all in the coming days as you continue life without him. I will pray he grants you all only beautiful memories of your time spent with him. And that you know what a wonderous celebration he met when he arrived home to be with those saints gone before him.
