I will always remember Uncle George weeding the flower box in the front yard of our home in Marysville whenever he and Ginny came to visit.  One time, I tried to help him and he stopped me by saying, "Don't pick that!  That's rhubarb and it takes a while to grow."  The following summer my rhubarb started producing stalks.  I also remember many, many Sunday suppers with Ginny and George.  We would be so full that George and I would take a walk after dinner.  To this day, whenever I am in a garden or taking a walk, I think of George.  He was, perhaps, my favorite walking partner.  From this day forward, I will always picture George weeding and mapping out the best walking paths in heaven.

Dear Virginia and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. George sounds like such a loving, hard working man who enjoyed all of God's creations. Losing someone we love can bring feelings that overwhelm us and take away our comfort. Since George loved Jesus, I would like to share with you a scripture that brings me comfort that you can look at in your own Bible at a convenient time that works for you. It's in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. For more information on our dead loved ones and additional comfort for those mourning our loved ones, please visit www.jw.org.
