    George indeed brought great joy and happiness to so many of us. His soul is kind and generous and showed through a twinkle in his clear 87 year eyes. He taught me peanut butter taste better when taken in the night, likewise, cake is most delicious when when it is baked for someone else. He showed me that I should/could tune up my math skills if I just put forth a little more effort, and that word association games really do keep a brain young. Most importantly, he taught me that patience is priceless (and he certainly had the most “persistent patience” of which rendered most powerless over time) and that one can awaken each morning with a refreshed sense of grace and happiness, no matter what difficulties we face. I give thanks for George and his loved ones for giving us the opportunity to be a part of his wonderful life. May George rest in eternal peace and comfort, and endlessly celebrate with those who went before him.

    George, you brought joy to all who knew you. You touched the lives of many. You will be sorely missed by all. I know you now rest in God’s hands. Have a bite of Snicker’s for me and not too much Pepsi. We all loved you so much, George. Rest in Heavenly peace.

    George is now in Gods Loving hands and our loving memories. He will now have his dollar, one huge Snicker’s, and a great big Math book everyday.
