Your heart is broken my dear friend, Karen. I know the pain all too well.
Another of the GOOD ONES leaves us too soon. George Smith will be missed by many!
You and George had such a strong, loving, special, bond that many envied. You two lit up the room when you entered with your fun, mischievous ways.
That’s the thing I loved about you both the many years ago when we first met. Always Loved pto have fun & not a phony bone in either one of you.
Your laugh is infectious. Please continue to share it! It is a gif! George loved that about you, among so many more things.
You may not find much to laugh about for a while but please don’t lose that gift!
Your next journey will have bumps, twists, turn, hills, and valleys.
There will be tears & fears! There will be doubts & challenges.
Know that George will be right beside you holding your hand like he has since you were 15 years old. WOW! You truly grew up together.
He has always been the LOVE of your LIFE.
That will never change.
Be confidant in yourself as you are faced with making decisions alone.
If you need someone to cry to, talk to, yell at, or “just be there.” I am a great listener.
My HEART is with you my dear friend!
Rest in peace George, Our love and prayers go out to you Karen and your family. May peace and love be with all of you. We love you.
