    To all the Parker family, especially Hilda, Eric, and Craig:
    I just learned of George\’s passing. I will always remember his wit and warm sense of humor … always with a twinkle in his eye. Each of you are in my thoughts…. I am honored to lift you in prayer as you grieve and attend to the many details that follow.

  2. Uncle George will be missed. I have many good memories of him, always sharing his 2 cents about things with his unique wit and sass. Hold tight to all the good memories you have of him, and he will always be with you in your heart.
