Losing someone so dear is devastating, and no words can ever really relieve that pain. But to help, I wish you courage and healing during these toughest days. Cry when you feel like it. Let the laughter roll when it comes. And know that George will forever live on in the journeys you shared together. We may know that death is a part of life, yet it’s never easy to lose someone even when we know it’s coming and there’s time to say goodbye, loss is never easy. You all have wonderful memories of George over the years and during his final days help you find peace.

I love you all and will continue to pray for each of you!
