I was blessed to have known George and Sharon. What Godly examples and servants of the Lord. Blessings on the family as they go on without George, and look forward to their reunion in Glory.

i will miss my frequent conversations with George! from politics, lizards thicket to Myrtle Beach to tumbleweeds, and Sharon's garden- we covered it all.
Great memories of his mom and dad as well- farewell old friend- God bless.

George was one of my very special customers on the mail route. Whenever I saw him, he always brightened my day. We would talk a little then giggle a lot and go on our way. I know he is one of God’s special Angel’s. I will miss him a lot.

George and I met when I was stationed at Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. I would visit his family on weekends—they had taken me into their family as another son. The Crews family would go to a Methodist church, and I would attend a Baptist church, then join them for the day. A wonderful family George had. I got my first taste of Southern hospitality in knowing them. I was so proud of George when he took on the responsibility of farming for Sharon’s family; without any former experience. George is in heaven waiting for us to join him. He had accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior, and those of us who do the same will be with George someday. It was an honor knowing such a man as George.
