We just finished watching the funeral service, which was a beautiful tribute to George. Our sincere condolences to Debby and family as you grieve the loss of a husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. We remember all the good times and laughter we have had as a family over the years, which will never be forgotten. Very thankful that we had the opportunity a few weeks ago to visit with George and say our "goodbyes". Rest in Peace George!
