I will miss my wonderful Godfather greatly. He was such a peaceful and gentle soul whom everyone enjoyed to be around. Rest peacefully as God welcomes you home with wide open arms.
Our prayers are with the family. I’m sorry I didn’t get to know you.
He will be sadly missed , the last of a generation , a gentleman and a gentle man
The end of an era. A fine, gentle and loving man. A wonderful brother to my Dad. I was proud to have known him.
I feel blessed to have met George if only briefly. He put a smile on my face every time I saw him and reminded me yet again about the value of love.
So very sorry to hear of your loss. Truly one of nicest and gentlest people I have ever met. May he rest in peace, my deepest condolences to the entire family.
Rest in peace Uncle George. You will be truly missed. Thank you for such wonderful memories……the card games, looking through your photo albums, the laughter as we talked about the good old days. You will not be forgotten. God be with you.
I was so sorry to read of your loss Cecelia. George was a gentleman in the true sense of the word. He’ll be missed for his quiet, gentle ways and his ever ready smile.
George was a fine, gentle andI loving man. His many acts of kindness to our Ernest family meant the world to us. We will treasure memories of his handsome smile and tall good looks, his good natured ways, and the jokes and laughter shared around the card table. Till we meet again George.
