Tim & Family,
Words can't describe how sad we feel for your loss. You spoke fondly of your father many times when we were working together years ago, and I can still picture in my mind that photo of you and your Dad at opposite ends of a 6 ft long sub sandwich you had won from a radio station. May you take some comfort in knowing that your friends will all be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

Please accept my sympathy on your loss. George was a sweet man and a sincere Christian. I knew him while I was pastor at Fayetteville UMC and enjoyed his children’s messages, and his orange Life Savers that he always carried with him. My daughter-in-law Theresa Morey and our son Jason knew him when they attended Amboy church. They also send their thoughts and prayers. I know he has been ill for some time. May he now be at peace. Grace and peace, Rev. Betty Morey

My deepest sympathy to the family. I loved George and all he did for the community in Amboy Center. We worked very close many times on church events and our childrens groups. He always volunteered and we had many laughs during choir with him and Linda as well as around their dining table over a cup of coffee. Loved them both very much.
My condolences,
Linda Savage
