George was a good man...husband, soul mate, friend, Father , brother and a son.
He was a Christian, God's child!!!
He was kind hearted, loving, caring and so humble.
I feel so blessed that he came into my life when he did.
I needed him and he needed me
God blessed us both when He joined us together till death do we part.
I miss him terribly but I am so thankful and grateful for all the wonderful years we had and to know that I will see him again, to know he's at Peace and with his Jesus eternally. ..
I will forever carry you in my heart, George till God calls me home...
Not goodbye, Until we meet again
I love you George ♡

I have not known the Skinners very long but they are wonderful new neighbors. I always saw George sitting on the porch with the dogs and he always spoke a warm word. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Godspeed to you, George Skinner in your journey in eternity with God!
