Dear Family,
I am so sorry to hear about George.
My heart goes out to you. Even though I
did not know you all very well you left
an impression on me by always taking the time to speak and give me a friendly smile.
Praying for you at this difficult time.

We have been praying for you all during this time of grief, that God would show you his grace in a special way. Sometimes it's difficult to trust in the Lord when something really hard comes along. We know that the Lord will show you the way. Please let us know what we can do to help.

George and I had been friends for nearly fifty years even though years could pass between we seeing each other; we could pick up where we left off. Knowing he is with Our Lord, means that I will see him again. My sincerest sympathy is with the family.
