I was saddened to hear of the passing of your father. I have happy memories of past times as neighbors when our mothers were especially close.

My dad (Fred) sends his regards.

Life is eternal, and love is immortal

and death is only a horizon

and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.

With Sympathy, Margarita, Rolandas and Simas

Dear Kathy and Rick,

I would like to express my deepest sympathy on the lose of your father. I treasure the many hours we spent together talking and visiting. There are so many memories that I will always remember. His love for the two of you and the pride he had in both of you was a true reflection of the kind hearted person he was and that his love for his family was his world. George was absolutely amazing, his intelligence, his memory, and dedication to family and friends. When he wanted to learn something he would not stop until he did, I remember how proud he was when he finally learned the words to the poem In Flanders Field and the smile he had when he finally knew all the words by heart, he would make me cry everytime when he got to the part (Short days ago we lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, loved and were loved). I know through the sadness of his passing we should remember how happy he must be to be with his sweetheart Mary whom he missed so much. My prayers and sympathy to your entire family. God bless him. As in his poem that he loved so much (To you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold high).
