Words cannot describe the loss experienced by all of us in his passing. But we can take comfort in knowing that he will join Ted and Jimmy who we will also never forget for their caring and friendly way. Our utmost condolences go out to the entire family. God Bless You all.

  6. To the family of George Winden:
    Dixie and all,; I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my heart and in my prayers. I loved George and know I am a better person for having known him. I was just thinking about the time he had me drive his truck while he was trying to round up cows on the property off I-25 south of town. I was so scared that day to be driving and chasing cows. Now it makes me smile. I will always remember George and his cows and what a huge loving heart he shared with everyone. I send you my sympathy, I send you my love. I look forward to seeing George again when I die.
    Your friend,
