For the family,
We are sadden to hear of your losing George un-expectingly in death. We are praying for all of you. It is sad to think that our grieving in the death of our loved ones seems like it will never end. It is like we are trapped in a vicious cycle. However there is good news. Our Creator views this condition we are in as a His enemy also (1Corinthians 15:26) and because of his love for each and every one of us he will bring it to an end. Please read this at Isaiah 25:8.

Our thoughts and prayers go to George's family. I just found out I'm so sorry.
He always was quite but seemed very nice he always said hi to me if I waved or spoke to him.
May God be with his family,
Amanda Norrid Daggs and Leslie & Shirley Norrid
