  8. Dear Wilma:
    How saddened we are to learn of George’s passing. We loved seeing him each week at Heather Glenn for Saturday evening services. Carlos was especially close to him and spoke of him often, including just a few weeks ago that he was his Sunday School Teacher at Calvary many years ago. We grew to love him more each week and seeing you too. May God bless you at this time, with His love and peace. Heaven continues to get sweeter all the time. Blessings to you and your family. A scripture that has always been a comfort to me in these times is Isaiah 40:31. May it give you peace.
    Much Love,
