Priscilla, we just learned this morning (Monday) about George's passing. We are so very sorry! We are not able to get to Commerce in time for the services, but please believe we are there in our hearts. George was a dear person and a great friend to us both for many years. God bless you and all your family. We know that George is in a much better place and that we will all meet again one day!
