So very sorry to hear of the passing of George Sr. I always have nice memories of him when growing up and spending time George B and the family. He and Lucinda always made me feel part of the family and I always liked his sense of humor. He was a great father and husband.

I’m here if any of family needs me and sorry that I cannot make the service.

Love Paul

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I too have lost loved ones and know this can be one of the most difficult things to go through. I just wanted to leave you with a scripture that has helped me and let you know your family will be in my prayers. The scripture is Acts 24 verse 15 and it talks about a hope of a resurrection when we could see our loved ones again here on the earth. If you would like to learn more about our comforting hope for the future feel free to email me.
