Dear Sandra, Bruce and Family,
I'm sorry to hear of George's passing. He was the partriach of the Innis family and it was really nice of him all these years to keep in touch with everyone in the family. I'll always remember how you and George helped me when my mother was going into the nursing home, and even when my sister Patty passed away and George was in the hospital , he said "call me and we'll talk".
He always was willing to give you hope and comfort.
Take Care..

I'm so sorry to learn of George's passing. It has caught me by surprise. He had the most gentle kind persona that I have ever seen. As little as we saw him & Sandy I always felt so welcomed & comfortable. There was sense of decency & respect for others that makes me weepy just thinking about him. My thoughts are with you Sandy.
