On behalf of myself and Visitation parish of Eaton, please accept our condolences for your family's loss. George was a volunteer in our CCD program when he lived in Eaton. His smile and willingness to help was so much appreciated.

In the age-old prayer of the Church: "Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. Amen"
