    Dody + Family;
    It’s hard to think of comfort at this time, but that’s exactly what you should be thinking of. The COMFORT KNOWING that “Big George” is in comfort with the Lord. No more pain. No more suffering. His sacrifice on this earth is complete. He is now at rest looking down at us and guiding us. Be strong for each other. Love and Peace to you all.
