Sorry to hear of your loss. It was so good to see our cousin George Jr. several months ago at my uncle's cookout in Varnville. We all had great conversations as well as sharing good memories of days gone by. Our prayers for comfort go out to your immediate family, and George I'll see you later with no pain at THE HOUSE. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

I had the privilege of working with George for 10 years. I can't recall a day that he didn't talk about his family with such pride. He was a dear friend to many and a stranger to none. He will truly be missed by all who knew him. May the peace of God, which transcends all understanding guard your hearts and minds in Chris Jesus.

So sorry for your loss. George was part of our lunch crew at work. Lunch has not been the same without him there. He always had some good stories to share and always made us laugh. Rest in peace George! Love Carolyn

Sympathy and prayers to Trudie and family whom he loved so dearly. I so much enjoyed George's friendship at Estill high school, school bus and fun times. Such a good comforting friend. So glad to visit him a couple months back before God called him home. God bless and comfort you all.

I called him Georgie when I greeted him. We always had a laugh. He was a good person to be around. His presence is and has been missed for a while now.
Sleep well Georgie.
