Linda and I were friends with George and Joy for over 50 years. They were more like family than friends. Our children were friends with there's. We vacationed together for years and have had many great times together. Lots of laughs and shared country side. We will never have more like them and we will never forget them or stop loving them. God bless the family and may He comfort you as only He can.
