George I know you had many dreams and I am sure one of those dreams were to someday play soulful and loving music in God's glorious band of angels in the sky, so the whole world can now hear and feel your love and music daily. George I know you will be missed here but I know God has a # 1 seat in his band with you name on it. God said George come on in and join my band and play the heavenly music that you so loved. My heart is with you and my family, I love you all as I pray. Your cuz. Jerome
