"I have only known George and Shirley for the last couple of years. George and I share a interest in War history. George was my go to source for stuff I was not sure about. His humble, patient approach to my inadequacies about history was that of a true professional soldier. I will miss him terribly."

"As we are welcomed "home" with open arms, we are surrounded by the warmth of those who have returned home before us, the calmness of our spirit being reborn with no pain, and the love that not only represents us in this life, but carries on forever as we are called to light the way for future generations........
