    Dear Dorothy and Family,
    I am saddened to learn of the passing of George. He was truly a kind, friendly and funny fellow. I remember him working the evening shift at Big Lots along with my daughter. He always had a smile on his face, and something hilarious to say. I will remember him fondly always. I pray that God will bring you comfort and peace and temper the pain of your loss. Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord! And may Perpetual Light shine upon him! May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed find Light, happiness, and peace. Amen
    In Sympathy,
    Emily (and Herbert) Neher
