We are so very sorry about the passing of your dad. George was an exceptional man, a memorable man. I have many childhood memories that include one of the Youngs and George was always there with a warm smile and open arms. My most vivid memory of George was how he loved his family.
Wishing you peace and comfort. God bless.
