To my lifelong friends/family,
You know the unique and lasting love I have for your Mom and Dad and the joy each has brought to me since the day I was born. My life has been
enriched by their love and my joy by the connection to both you Gary and Mark.
May he rest with the angels and know that not a moment of his life will be forgotten.
Ethel, my love is with you as a child to their mother.. Thank you and my gratitude to you all for making me part of a family that I treasure.
All my love,
Annie and Roger

I have been hearing stories about George and Ethel for well over 40 years and have as such developed a distinct affection for them both.

Mark, I know you have been a God send to your parents and have been a dedicated caregiver to your dad for these past several years. I think you were blessed with a unique opportunity in that respect.

My heart goes out to each one of you - but most especially to Ethel. Please know I am thinking of all of you and that I hold you in my heart as you celebrate George’s life in the coming days. You are so fortunate to have each other as you travel this path together - the circle of life. With Much Love to you, Sue
