Dear Elsie and Family,
Our sincere sympathy in the passing of
George. He was such a kind, caring gentleman always thinking of others, as both of you do. He was so very helpful to so many
at Silver Spring Garden Apts my mother so appreciated his cleaning off her car when bad weather would occur. I'm sure
the angels rejoiced when he arrived in the Heavens.
Praying God's peace, love and comfort to surround you all.

our daughter and her family - My prayers are with you all.
