Uncle George🦉🪶🕯️💫✨🦋🌈My early childhood memories of you are filled with your Joyous laughter & stories. Your strong powerful voice & presence always giving me comfort & safety. Thank you for going above & beyond to help me & Jason feel included & letting us be ourselves. You & Aunty Jackie’s guidance in our tween/teen years have always kept us looking to our hopes & dreams for our futures when we felt lost in our realities at that turbulent time. Until we meet again. I found this to share with all who love you…”I am writing this from Heaven, Where I dwell with God Above, I am resting here with Angels, Who surround me now with Love. Although I may seem far away, We will truly never part, For part of me Lives on forever, There within your Heart. So remember to have faith, Be courageous and be Strong. Think of me with a smile, And when you hear a heartfelt song. As Life’s Beautiful journey continues, May you remember now & then, I will Love & Protect you ALWAYS, Until We Meet Again.🕯️💫✨🦋🌈Love you Uncle George.
