When I lost my first father in 2000, I never thought I'd suffer the same loss twice. I will never forget how he was there for me after my divorce. He helped me move out of the house, had a room all set up for me back at home, helped me move on, drove me to work until he taught me to drive. He was a sweet, caring man. I will never forget the last time I heard "I love you" from him. I hope he knows how greatly missed he will be. I love you Dad. May you rest in peace.

Always fond memories of George at Walmart. Was always very kind with encouraging words. I can still see him and Juanita sitting in the lunchroom playing cards on their lunch. You could always tell that they were very much in love. Just know that you are always in my prayers.

My deepest sympathy go out to Juanita and the family. I worked with George at Walmart and he was a great guy! After he left he would come in and be a bright spot in my day! He will truly be missed! Love Sam and Shareice and the entire Walmart family.

I cant believe this happened. From a broken arm to this. You will be greatly missed. All the times we all swam in your pool, the parties we shared. You have brought happiness to Juanita. Words can not express how much you are loved and will be missed. You were a great brother in law. We will see you on the other side. Until then RIP. We love you!
