Dear Clara and Rosalie —
Even though it’s been during a very tender season, I am glad and grateful that God has allowed our paths to cross. It was a blessing to meet dear George; may his memory be eternal.
May God’s peace and blessings be yours; and, may He give you many lovely memories, so that you may always have roses in December.

Ever hoping . . .
Always in Jesus,

Maryann (Music Ministry Volunteer)

George always gave me a hard time for my long hair when we worked together. He said it cut my eyes, that’s why i needed contacts. He was a great guy and the nicest person. He will be missed.

Please accept our most sincere sympathy over George’s passing. He has been so kind to all of us. He always had a kind word, a cold drink and even an occasional treat for all of our drivers upon their arrival. That thoughtfulness has always been appreciated and will be remembered. He was a wonderful man!
