Thank you for always believing in me and helping me to achieve my goals Best advice ever was “Don’t ever work for someone who is dumber than you” I’ve only worked for myself because of it The way you would introduce me to people as your “Big Sister” always tickled me You have been and always will be my personal super hero My last name means EVERYTHING to me and it all started with YOU G PaPa Thank you for your presence
Love Always
Your Big Sister

Papa George,
We have some fun memories of stopping by your house on Sundays after church and drinking Sunkist Orange and Big Red sodas. We also got to watch two or three different sports events because you always had several television sets turned on at one time. You were quite a character. RIP—Til We Meet Again 🙏🏾
Love Always,❤️
Victor and Family
