I'm so sorry to hear of George's passing, and send my love and condolences to the family. He was a good man, who had a good life. I know that Daddy is happy to see him. Rest in peace, Uncle George. The photo attached of the four siblings was taken after my parent's wedding.

I pray that God will comfort the family and give them peace. Uncle George lived a long life and has a beautiful family.
Going to the river was always a happy time. Uncle George would ride us around in the boat and there was always someone water skiing. I admire Uncle George for the care he gave Poppa, Mamie and Francis.
