I re activated this guest book today. I came across it again while doing a google search of your name. Seven years and still a hole as large as the Grand Canyon. As large as the forever skies across Montana. We were all together this past weekend for a baseball tourney for Casey and boy does he play so much like you did! There were moments where it felt like you were standing right there with us. I certainly wish you were. I miss you little brother....greatly.

There are so many moments that it feels like you are just on vacation or something. Mom and Dad's anniversary came and I expected to get a text from you asking if we should BBQ for them. Your baby girl got a 4.0 this last quarter and your boy is rocking the baseball world. Your nephew misses you. I miss George. I miss your laugh, smile and all your joking ways. I can hear your laugh always... Love you much.

Was just thinking of you today brother dear. Decided to come and read all the warm and kind words that everyone has had to say about you. The holidays without you are tough, sad and lonely, but the happy memories are getting us all through. We all miss and love you very much and wish your were still on this earth with us, but We are thankful that you are our angel above and watching down on us all to help us get through the days. I love you George, my brother, my best friend, and I miss you very very much! Hugs and kisses coming up your way! Merry Christmas George!

I can not believe it has almost been a month since we lost you. It feels like forever. So proud of you and the way you touched people's lives. Your service was a testimony to that. I miss you, I miss being able to just text you and you having a snappy come back all the time. A huge hole in my heart :(
