Memories Timeline


  1. To Judy, I was deeply saddened to read of George’s death, and my heartfelt prayers go out to you and your family. What a sweet and kind friend he was, always uplifting and encouraging. We sat together at BSF, and it was a special time in The Lord. May we rejoice in the midst of grief knowing he is present with The Lord. May God bless you with peace and comfort.

  2. Hello Judy and family, George was a very good friend to me. We met a few years ago at BSF. We both sat near the front on the right side. Then when we wound up in the same small group we really hit it off well. We seemed to be experiencing many of the same things and feelings with respects to what God was doing in our lives, in the group, and in the world. We shared some wonderful lunches together enjoying each other’s company and “having church.” George was a great inspiration to me and such a pleasure to be around. I will surely miss him.

  3. To George’s family, I am very sorry for your loss. I met George in my role as manager of the Southbank Owners Association. We had many long talks at the clubhouse. He was a great guy. Bob

  4. Dear Judy, George’s warmth and kindness has touched so many of us. May your fond memories and the love & prayers of family & friends give you comfort. Cindy & Paul

  5. Judy, I was saddened to hear of this world’s loss of such a kind, gentle spirited man. But we know this world is not our home, we’re just travelling through. I’m positive he has encouraged and touched so many lives…we will see him again. Please let Shannon, Howard, Toni and the girls know that my thoughts and prayers are with them. My prayer for you is that you can find peace and joy in all the beautiful memories you two have shared….

  6. Judy… I am so very sad that I will not be able to be there for Daddy’s Memorial service. My Granddaughter is really sick & I just can not go off and leave her. You will be in my prayers today and I have nothing but wonderful memories of one of the sweetest men that ever lived. I know he is in a better place now, but I will miss him so much, and I will miss hearing his sweet voice every week when we would talk. I loved him so much! Sending hugs to you…..

  7. We were all so blessed to have had such a sweet and loving person in our lives. And I know I was blessed and fortunate to call him my grandfather and to have so many happy memories from my childhood and as an adult. Rest in peace, Pop! I will be forever grateful that you were able to be at our wedding. You will be so missed! Love you!
