I am saddened at the loss of this good friend. George always enjoyed sharing his home with friends from church and the different groups he attended. He was a gracious host along with his wife, Lee. Both of them were talented artists and their home was filled with painting they both had done.
They both enjoyed our monthly Mariners pot luck dinners and then playing Mexican Train with others from church.
I enjoyed being around his daughter Lisa and even was a good friend of the family dog, Mekanna. She was like a grand child to George and Lee and I was grateful that she got to come and stay with me a couple of times. In addition on special days such as birthdays I could always count of a special card being sent to me that Lee had painted herself.
George was truly a servant of God and I have no doubt he will organize a group up in Heaven to play Mexican Train!
Our hearts go out to this wonderful family we were thankful to call our friends.
