George’s family would like to acknowledge the doctors, nurses, and staff of the VA Hospital & Clinics for the wonderful care given to their husband, father and grandfather.
I have walked many paths since the day of my birth trying to fill another father’s shoes. Hoping the paths I walked will be easier for my sons, grandson, great grandsons, guiding them to the right path in their own shoes. Now I have come to the end of my own path.
