Sending sincere condolences to Nancy and all of the Harper family. I will miss this friend, whom I have known for at least 40 years, who always had great information and sound advice. He was so knowledgeable and had such a profound understanding of people. He made such a difference in the lives of so many and the work that he and Nancy did through their involvement with the American Legion and their work in the community serve as great examples of commitment and sacrifice. I will miss my friend. I feel blessed for the experience of having known him and been a part of his circle of friends!

"Let there be memories - fond recollections of special occasions and everyday things. Let your heart start on its journey to healing by feeling the comfort remembering brings.

Let there be memories - pictures, momentos, and favorite stories both funny and sad. Let your mind wander the paths of remembrance, reliving the joys and the good times you’ve had.

Let there be memories - signs that our loved ones remain near in spirit long after they’re gone...tender, surprising, heartwarming, and welcome...sweet proof of the promise that love will live on."

Dear Nancy and Family,
What a great honor to serve beside George in the American Legion. I especially learned a lot from the last speech I heard him deliver to a District Meeting in Jackson. Upbeat, confident, looking to a bright future, stamped on the hearts of the listeners with his million dollar smile. We were so sorry to hear the news of George's passing. But then again, God's care is perfect. All the members, from across the great state of Tennessee, join me in extending our condolences to your family. May God begin now to heal your hearts as you all go on a grief journey for a while. Someone wrote, "Healing comes through story." May God be gracious and send 10,000 stories to continue to share. May our loving God walk with you step for step on this journey as we continue to labor together to make this ol world a better place. May the Lord bless you and keep you and may He send His peace continue to fill your hearts.

The first time I met George was at the 2018 American Legion Department of Tennessee Convention in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, it was his smile, that I noticed first but when I met him, it was like I knew him all of my life.
I will greatly miss him and think of him often. I will pray for him and his family.
