Deb, Linda and family, I remember George as a little boy bugging us when his big sister was babysitting. He was a character, no doubt, but he took good care of his sister Linda. Dick and Carolyn Brandt The Villages, Fl.

Deb, Sarah, John and all the kids, our deepest condolences through this rough time. Times like these are not easy but do get easier with time. There are no words I could say to make things better. Just know my heart breaks along with yours. George was such a wonderful man. I loved just sitting and talking with him. And most of all the way he was with Adrienne. She will always hold the name "Skeeter". God gained another angel the other day. And he will forever be missed. Prayers for strength and healing for each and every one of you.
