Dear Marie,
This is a wonderful time in which to live. Nancy and I are in Russia serving a mission and heard about the passing of George just a short time ago. How I loved him. You will remember when you lived in Ogden on Washington Blvd and I used to come to the house where George would help me (or try to) with my college chemistry understanding. He was my salvation during those days. I have so many memories of him, all filled with his smile and attitude about things. He will be missed. I hope you have lots of family around you to support and sustain you at this time. I guess I'm the oldest blood in the family now. Hard to believe all these years have gone by. May you be comforted during this time of sorrow and uplifted in your knowledge of life and death. Doug Williams
