Dear Family, I am so saddened by the loss of Bro, George. He was such a kind and loving man, and always available to give me good gardening advice. We loved swapping stories and he even helped me plant things a few times in my back yard from clippings from his plants! He was a fabulous master gardener! I loved his sense of humor, his positive attitude, and smile. The thing I admired most about Bro, George was his love for Jesus! He was a wonderful example of Christ in action lived his life according to the scripture each day. I loved him dearly and I always hold a special place in my heart for him. Saying good by to someone we love is never easy, but I pray you find comfort in knowing that he is with His beloved Lord and Savior, and in all the special memories and happy times you had with him here. Praying for all of you during this difficult time. With Love, Beverly Davis
