  1. To me, my Uncle George was a warm generous person who knew how to enjoy life. He was greatly admired by my parents for his enormous endurance and enthusiasm for work. I, personally, liked listening to his stories, life experiences, and opinions about current events and trends. What an interesting uncle I had! I will miss him. He had a flamboyance that was all his own. God’s grace to Sally, family, and friends at this difficult time.

  2. My Grandfather was definitely unique as they come in this life. I don’t think I will ever meet another like him. Between him and his boss (my grandmother) I could not have been blessed with any better set of grandparent’s. He and Grandma are now together and I pray at peace. I hope as long as I live not to forget them or the memories of them in Colorado . I will Love and Cherish those Memories as long as I live.

  3. My memories of Uncle George and Aunt Opal will forever be with me as some of the best of my childhood. “Special” is how they made me feel. How wonderful it was to see them in later years. I love them, and I miss them both!
