"God saw the road was rough,
The hills were her to climb;
And so He closed his eyes
And whispered, "Peace be thyne."
The weary days, the hours of pain,
The weary nights are past'.
The ever patient, worn out frame
Has found Sweet rest at last."
Winston Churchill once observed that we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
George certainly knew how to make a living, but more importantly he recognized how to make his life one of
faithfulness and peace. He strove to give not only of his possession, but also of himself that the needs of
others might be addressed more justly, more faithfully, He learned that attitude, not only within his family
of origin, but within a community of faith that surrounded him with an experience of God's gracious, abundant love.
George's heart was the gift he gave back to the generous God whom he had come to know and worship in Christ Jesus.
Yea, though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will ear no evil, for God is with you George.
We remember you George and give thanks to God for your life. May God comfort your family with your faith.
