Our deepest sympathies to your family. We cherish each moment we were blessed with to spend with George, his big warm smile, his bright eyes, his endless loving nature…we loved talking about farming and the weather, but most of all he loved to talk about and be with his family whom he loved so much. George’s love will forever live in the hearts of all those who had the honour to know him, for that we are all better people. ❤
