I remember Mr. and Mrs. Satterfield from our earliest days at Carmel Baptist Church ( Fall 1983). I remember that she served in the Church Library, and he was a quiet and humble gentleman. I am thankful that the two of them touched our lives as a young married couple. So thankful for the friendship that we are developing with George, Jr. and Debbie. May God give your family peace and comfort in these difficult days!
With love,
Kathy (and Eric) Fletcher

I met George and Fran when my husband and I joined the Sunday School Class of David Trammell.
We were impressed with the humility and wisdom that George possessed. What a gift !
May God comfort the hearts of his family and friends at this difficult time.
