up I spent as much time at the Marovich home as my own. George was like a second Dad to me. Lots of great memories. I will
are hard at the loss of a loved one. Every year at Christmas time I put an ornament on my tree from your family, so you are
thought of you often. I wonder how all are doing blessings for all and I know George is in peace with our heavenly father.
I have taken care of George now for about a year. He was always so kind and
truely wanted what was best for me in this life. He told me all about his life travels and regrets. He told me he loved
me and that someday I was going to be an amazing RN. Thanks George for all words and kindness. And prayers to the family.
