Condolences to your entire family. George and your mom Nellie were good friends of ours. We always enjoyed their company. Now they are together again with your Uncle Ray. We will remember George for his kindness, his spirit, his sense of humor, his love of family, how proud he was of his daughters and his wonderful smile. George and his stories, always interesting, always refreshing, always enlightening and some times truly hilarious. Who hasn’t heard George tell the apple tree story and not until the very end did we realize it was a joke. George and Nellie will live on in their 4 daughters forever and for always, and in our hearts as wel.
