Dear Leta, and Family. "Sorry for your loss" I am from the Legion, and I use to fix the brakes on George's cars. My heart goes out to you Leta and your family. Please know that my thoughts are with you at this time. I'm sorry that I can not be with you at this time, as I am battling cancer.

Our condolences Leta and family at the loss of George who has joined our Lord in heaven, probably near a brook with a fishing rod or at a heavenly golf course. When we lose someone so special we find ourselves wondering why, however God has plans for all of us and we have to put our faith in him.
There will be times we seem so heartbroken at our lose, that we just need to focus on the wonderful memories we had as a family and friends it will help us go through our sorrow.
Love

We will all miss George. Memories include images of him enjoying an afternoon at the cottage a couple of years ago and of him chuckling away at the antics of the kids around him (yours and ours). Our thoughts are with you all.
