"I remember George from my days working at RCCC. At one point when I was recovering from illness and had just returned to work, George made a point of speaking to me just to let me know he had been praying for me and would continue to do so. Thank you George for your service to our country. My prayers are with all the family members at this time and I hope memories of happier times spent together bring smiles and laughter through the tears. RIP George..."well done good and faithful servant"."
