I didn't know of your illness and was shocked to see it on a Facebook posting. You taught me many things, during our 16 years, of which I am grateful. Rest in peace, my Dear..... Paula Andrews and Family, April 9, 2017 I did not know George that well but he was apart of our extended family and we spent many holidays and special occasions together. I never saw George when he wasn't smiling and making jokes, he seemed to never have a bad mood. My son Matthew loved George and was quite sad when we told him. Matthew is a special needs child and George ALWAYS made an effort to include Matthew in conversation and made Matthew feel like one of his Grandkids. George's kindness towards Matthew always left me with a soft spot in my heart for George. George loved his family and took great joy and pride in his Grandkids lives. He will truly be missed by all who knew him. Debbie and William Reavis, April 7, 2017
