    I will miss you, my friend! I enjoyed taking care of you and Jean. I always looked forward to seeing you when I went to work, along with your smile and good morning! You always had a quick comeback on some of the things we talked about. I am glad you are again reunited with your love, Jean, whom I know you missed. I will miss you here, George. I’ll do you proud in nursing school❤️

    To George and Jean’s children:
    I am glad I got to spend time with your parents while I was working at Eventide. I am very sad to hear of them both passing. I always painted Jean’s nails and played trivia with George. George had a sharp mind and could remember what things cost 50 years ago! They were a very sweet couple that always had to know where the other was and what they were up to. I am glad they can rest in eternal peace together. I am blessed I got to know them both.

    Condolences to Rob, Lynn and Ellen and families. Our parents had over fifty years of friendship, including each Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for decades. Perhaps they are sharing a cocktail in heaven.

    Thinking of the Thompson family at this time. Wishing we had one more holiday to all spend together. I will always remember your Dad’s kindness and reassurance when I was scared to have surgery. Blessings to you all.
