We are so saddened by the loss of our great cousin and friend. We loved George being close to, and growing up with him living in the same ward. We did so much together and I Shawna spent many days at their house and he at ours. We were extremely close as cousins and remained that way our whole lives. My heart is broken and I will miss his great hugs when ever we saw each other. I hope he has reunited with his Mom, Dad and Sister Kathi and look forward to reuniting with them some day. My love and sympathy to all you boys and thanks for a beautiful obituary

Words can't describe our wonderful and fun relationship with George and his boys. Our four boys took swimming lessons together and played on beach of Fort Waltonbeach, Florida. We continued our friendship when they moved back from Alabama. Our boys have grown and gone on their way. George will remain one of our dear friends forever ❤
