I always loved you beyond all measure, as you well know... Who would have thought we would spend 7 years together, raise two dogs, and actually listen to experimental music for so long, and so happily? You had been so longing for music when I met you - and cartoons, too! - and we finally had them together. My love always... And my eternal love to your mother, who was so gracious to me and grateful for our happiness. Nobody else can ever know what that meant to you and me...

Uncle George, sorry we couldn't make it back for your service. Mom has been keeping us updated as to what was happening back there. We will miss you but now you are finally at peace. The family will miss you, especially my mom because she loved you so much. She cried every time she gave us updates about your condition. Rest in peace.

I never met George in person, but we met thru Farmville on facebook a couple years or so ago. He seemed like a nice person, and I loved seeing pictures of his dogs. I was sad to hear he was seriously ill these past few months, and saddened when I heard he died this past Sunday. But even though we never met in person, I am glad we did get to know each other a little thru facebook. I am

George you have always been a joy to me. We loved to laugh together. We did not get to complete the family reunion we were working on however I am sure you are having a reunion in heaven. My prayers are with your family . You will be missed.

There are no words that will make it right that you are no longer with us. But, in knowing that you are no longer suffering and are now among the Angels, will hopefully get us through the rough times that are in front of us. I know you will be watching over all of us, from above. We will always carry your memories in our hearts, that will help fill some of the void of you being gone. Luv to you George.

You may have left us here on earth and have gone up to Heaven, but you will be with me forever in my heart. You have been the best brother anyone could have asked for. You were always there for me, to support me, to comfort me, to talk and laugh with me. We had some wonderful conversations and I will always remember your favorite phrases as they always made me laugh. Even though God has now called home all of my family I find great comfort knowing you are now walking with Mom and Dad.

Forever in my heart! I stood by you these last few months, holding your hand, and trying to make sense of why God wanted you. Apparently, he needed another angel to help watch over the family! I love you so very much, and will miss you more than words can ever say! Love you Dad!
