  1. An honor and a privilege to know George and Aloha. George always greeted me with a smile and I have never forgotten how uplifting George and Aloha were when they greeted me at Praise Assembly. Such fond memories. Although it’s been many years since I’ve seen George, his influence remains in my heart. Sweet rest my friend and I will look forward to our reunion in eternity.

  2. George was a special man whom it was an honor and privilege to know. He is now at rest and peace in the Arms of his Lord whom he so faithfully served through his years. Our families have been acquainted for many years, and we have pleasant memories of times spent together in various activities when we lived in Pueblo. We now live in Texas and altho’ we are many miles apart, we share this time with you and ARE there with you in “love and spirit”.
    May the Lord’s love, peace, strength and encouragement be with you all now and in time to come. Remember, he will ALWAYS be only a memory away, many loved ones and friends WELCOMED HIM “HOME”, and one day we will all join them! What a comfort that gives to us all.

    Love and prayers,
    Verne and Nancy Luellen
