Dear Aunt Lori and family,

Uncle George’s passing is a true loss for everyone. He was a kind and generous man. He made me feel welcome as soon as I met him. He always took an Interest in everything that concerned family and friends. Seth and Sadie always said how much George reminded them of their “Pop” - two good men.
Lori, I know you must be heartbroken as you two shared a grand love and a good life together. Please accept my sincere condolences and know that you are in my thoughts and my heart. I’ll be looking for signs from our newest angel and hoping he enjoys his new eternity . Much love , Claire
