George was a personal friend and mentor to my eldest daughter. I spent much of the day producing a 12 minute video for the funeral which will be held Sunday afternoon. Here’s a snippet of the that video that includes the song my daughter wrote especially for George.
As a man of faith, George leaves us for a better place. He will be missed but not forgotten.… Read the rest
