To all of George's family,
I heard George was sick and was very sad to hear of his passing. I know it has been a difficult time and wanted you all to know that I said special prayers for him on the day he died. There is a certain emptiness once both parents are gone; it feels like the "end of an era". . . at least that's how it was for me. Thinking of you all today and asking God to grant comfort moving forward. Peace

Jim (Corbello) and I want to send our sympathy to the Louviere family.
Many memories of this wonderful man while he and Johnny (Gillett) were volunteer firemen.
I so enjoyed time spent with Ms. Rose and Mr. George at firemen cooking events and get-to-gethers. His bright smile and gift of humor will not be forgotten.
Thoughts and prayers for all during this time of loss.

I loved Mr George. He was such a good loyal honorable man. I spent a lot of time with him and learned a lot. He missed his calling I think because he was a master at carpentry. Amazing things he could build. Beautiful things. He was so good to my family and my Father. It was so comforting to see him now and then at his old job at Griffin Lumber. He is already sorely missed.
