  1. George, a blast from your past . . .

    I doubt our paths have crossed since our school days at dear old EHS and maybe a class or two at CSC, but learning of your loss tugs at my heart. Blessings, old friend.

    And remember, if our loved ones are with God, and God is with us, then our loved ones are still nearby.

  2. George & family,

    My heart was so saddened for you and your children as I read about LaDeana. It brought back so many memories. The days when we lived two doors down from you all. How I always enjoyed being around her because of her zest for life. I also thought about the day we came by to visit you guys about the class reunion. She showed me all her stain glass art and her room addition and upgrades you had built for her. She talked with so much pride about you and the kids.

    I also experienced her great nursing skills first hand. She was so beautiful inside and out and full of talents!

    What a wonderful 45 years God has given you all! I know she will be so missed here on earth but our Heavenly Father has called her home to use her wonderful talents in Heaven!

    Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

    Your classmates and friends,
    Sherry and Bill Bowman

Please do not think that the years that have gone by have lessened my fond memories of you and so many of our classmates. Those kind of bonds just continue through time and space, don’t they! You and yours will be in my prayers. May God give you the strength, grace and comfort loss requires. Always…..Marcia
