George was very special to me. He will remain in my memories always. He fought the good fight...he finished the race. I believe when he crossed the finish line to his eternal home he was overwhelmed by loved ones waiting to welcome him home. The loudest voice from his own Heavenly Father..."Well Done! My Good and Faithful Servant." The legacy of his large loving family speaks volumes regarding his fine character. The friends he made, the small gestures, the lives he touched - even for a short while...his kindness and affection, again, will never be forgotten.
