I am honored to be one of George and Mary's daughters-in-law. George was the epitome of a southern gentleman and was always so kind and respectful of everyone. I always felt welcome in his home and family, and will miss him dearly.

After Mary passed away, George enjoyed his children's visits and being included in their lives. They took him on vacation, to visit other children, to graduations and weddings, and even to the casino now and then. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was a joy to be around. He was always interested in getting to know people, asking them many questions. He loved to read the newspaper to keep up with current events, and loved to read books, too. He enjoyed the home cooked food that several of us took him. A couple of times I made something he didn't care for but he was still a gentleman in telling my husband, Danny, "tell Vicki she doesn't have to make that one again," haha.

George and Mary raised 10 wonderful children who grew up to be loving friends, wives, husbands, aunts, uncles and grandparents, so their legacy lives on.

I am blessed to have known George and Mary and am so happy that George was here with his family for the George Christmas, then went home to spend Christmas Day with Mary in the house of The Lord.

We will always love and miss you.

Love, Vicki

What a wonderful man! He was full of charm and wit...he will be missed, but you have so many memories of him to last you the rest of your life! I only new him for a few short years...but, he was full of love for his family and life! He will be missed, but having beautiful children that will carry on his legacy, we will still "see" him! May Gods peace and comfort sweep over each of you during this painful, but earthly separation. Cindy Hall

I didn't get to be in his presence more than a handful of times, but I know he was dearly loved by those who exposed me to him, Jim, Phyllis and family. May the service tomorrow do him the honor that I know is in your hearts.
