Dear Pam and Family,
"Those we love can never be more than a thought away..for as long as there's a memory they live in our hearts".
The Tribute Video is a beautiful love story of your family's life with your Dad and Mum and Robert. George is with his bonnie wee lass and Robert now. May they rest in Peace 🙏❤
It was a blessing to know George. I remember him saying each time we said "cheerio" he would say "if I don't see you through the week
I'll see you through the window".
George looks so peaceful...I was very touched when his Veteran friend placed a poppy on his jacket lapel. ❤
Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you today.

To my dear cousins
I will always cherish the wonderful memories that we shared with your family growing up together in our families homes as kids.
Uncle George always could make a room of darkness light up with his infectious laugh and jokes. He gave me the desire to always better myself and to love my friendships as he had a huge love for our family
I'll always remember him for his "Why did the chicken cross the road "joke, that would have me laughing till I would almost cry! I would often tell friends and work colleagues about my wonderful uncle that could make you laugh before the punch line of jokes . I also modelled my work ethic after him. Uncle George had a profound influence on me as a kid and even today. I can still hear his voice with that Scottish lilt that probably sell anything to anybody!
I am truly sorry for your loss but I find comfort to feel that our parents are all together again, enjoying a we drink on Friday afternoon when he would just drop by to visit. I always thought that it was a random visit but I look back and think it was always planned that way. My hope for you all is that you find comfort for a life well lived and loved by everyone he met
Sincerely Richard Stevenson

Mr. and Mrs. Taylor were both lovely people. They were both always smiling and had a joke to tell.
George played golf with my dad George McMillan. My dad thought the world of him.
I’m sure they are up in heaven sharing a wee dram.
Our deepest sympathies to all of you from the McMillan family.

Craig, Pam, David and family, so sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of both your Mom and Dad and of course my first boyfriend Robert. Remembering those times makes me smile. Such good hearts! Always a kind word and smiles. Trust your memories will give you comfort at this time. Take care.
