George Wessinger was my roommate at NHC Health Center from July until the night he passed. He was kind and helped me without complaint. His family members were kind to us also. He welcomed us into his room. Please accept our deepest condolences and may your memories of ‘Squeaky’ give you comfort in the coming days. Sad to see him go. Sincerely,Charles and Pennye Hamilton
