I met George while in the St. Peter's Handbell Choir from 1996 until I moved back to Texas in 2001. I loved his sense of humor and we shared stories of traveling to Texas to see family. We knew it was a long 12 hour drive one way. When I saw on my calendar in June that he turned 85 I thought, "a life well lived." May God bless his soul. Prayers and love for his family. I wish I could be there to ring for his Mass. Peace.

I stood next to George in hand bell choir. I can not count the number of times I lost my place playing a hymn during Mass. George always got me back on track. I'll always feel like George is standing next to me when we play our hand bells.

We played in the handbell choir with George at St. Peters for many years. He was a kind man of quiet dignity with a droll sense of humor. We always marveled at his travels and his love for life .We will miss him dearly.
