George really loved my sister, Betty Jean.
They were compatible in spirit and intelligence . She loved him dearly.
They shared similar political and spiritual values. My sister was not great at smiling but when ever she was photographed with George she smiled from ear to ear.
I will miss you George especially our rants about Trump. You were a great husband and provider and l guess lover. You raised terrific children. Will miss you George.

It was an honor to know and care for George. He is one of the sweetest and most caring people that I have ever met. I will miss you George, but I find comfort in knowing you are where you want to be. Agape love is what you spoke of often, and now you are there. I love you George!!!

George was one of the sweetest patients I've had the pleasure of working with. He was so easy to talk to and always asked about my girls. I wish I had more time to get to know him. He will definitely be missed.
