I liked calling uncle George on veterans day and thanking him for his many years of service to our country. Although mom and I have not seen George for several years he will be missed by us and all who new him. Gay you and the family are in our prayers. Steven and Annette Smith

Uncle George was always my hero. I will certainly miss him. He is with the Lord and surely sharing hugs and stories with his parents and brothers. God bless you Gay. You certainly were the love of his life and you were the very best for him. We love you and wish we could be there with you.
Ken, Kathy and Ken.
