  1. Dear Janice, Bill & Karen, and families,
    Our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your husband and brother. It’s been some time since we have had a chance to visit, but we have always enjoyed our visits and quick chats when we bump into each other at a nearby diner or lumber yard! George always had a quick wit and a smile when those visits occurred, and waited patiently when the conversations turned to “girl talk”. Our prayers surround you and your families as you release him into the waiting arms of Jesus, may you hold your memories close and his spirit in your hearts. When the darkness feels overwhelming remember that death’s power is limited-it cannot eradicate memories or slay love, it cannot destroy even a threadbare faith or permanently hobble the smallest hope in God! It cannot permeate the soul, and cannot cripple the Spirit, it merely separates us for a while – that is the ONLY power death can claim! No more! Blessings to All who loved and will miss George.
