George

We got news on Tuesday that Casey's Uncle George died, he had had a heart attack days earlier and multiple complications arose. I know I called Grandma Phyllis every day waiting to get news on George. We waited worried, I wished over and over again that we could be there to give hugs, help where ever, to hold hands.

George was a vivid man, he was quiet in a strong powerful way. He lived life with purpose, with drive. He made an impression. He left behind Loretta, his amazing wife, three kids, and five grandchildren.

One of my favorite memories of him is simply of his face as he watched Alex, his cousin Brennen and his other cousin Emily kick a ball around his back yard. He grinned with delight at this new generation of family playing in the grass. His face was relaxed, quiet, and happy. His eye sparkled, they always seemed to sparkle.

We will miss him so dearly, so deeply, and we wish we could be there on Tuesday at Forest Lawn to stand with family as he is laid to rest.

I never know what to say at times like this, but I feel the loss of a person like that. His spirit lives on for sure. <3 to you & casey.
