I miss you my friend. But I know wherever you’re at, you’re happy, smiling and dancing away. You’re a wonderful person, a great friend, my best friend. All you ever wanted was for to be happy. That I deserved to be happy. I promise you I won’t let her go. I love you George. I’ll make you proud. So long my friend, until the next time I see you again.

My deepest sympathies to Crystal, Dawn, Julie, and Blake as you deal with the untimely passing of your beloved brother, George. While we aren't blood related, we are related by choice since 1968, and his passing leaves a hole in my heart as well. RIP, George, I know you are reunited with your mom and dad. Sandy M.
Great memories growing up around your family, you will be missed
