By Bev Henke

Dear Linda & family, There are no words or gestures that can be said or done to ease the pain you are going through in the loss of your beloved husband/Father/Grandfather so suddenly taken from your family circle, if there were I would gladly say & do whatever it would take to give you support and to help you find peace and comfort. I know he was a good man although I never had the privilege of getting to know him well but I am assured that is the case because he had such a beautiful family and that isn't given, it is earned. God rest his soul, he is released from his earthly ailments. God's Blessings to you & Yours, sending my Love & prayers to all

Linda and family George will always have a special place in our hearts! We have so many memories in such a few short years that we knew him. Both John and I feel such great sadness, and I am sure it is only a fraction of the the sadness you and your family are sharing his.
