 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.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you, the day God took you home.
If tears could build a stairway, and heartaches make a lane,
we would walk our way to heaven, and bring you back again.
 In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still,
in our hearts you hold a place no one could ever fill.


 My words can not express how much I will miss you Pap.
 You will be missed not forgotten!
I love you!

Misty Walker- granddaughter
