Dearest Uncle George. I have so many fond memories of you and absolutely relish the times we spent together I loved when you popped in with those beautiful dried Hydrangeas from your garden. I was the wife of your nephew but absolutely felt the warmth of your love for the family and gracious comments and time you spent walking my gardens. I will forever remember your smile and kind heart. Your smile remains with me. Forever in my heart.....
