I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle George. Uncle George used to call me and send me mail frequently after my grandpa passed (Jessie). He was a kind person and I loved talking with him. He told me all about his children. He was so very proud of them. Unfortunately, I lost contact with him in the last year and a half and tried calling him to find his number had changed. I am unsure if he moved to Arizona as he had talked about to be with this daughter. He was a great leader in the Sheagley family and always was so thoughtful of others. He will be greatly missed. I am so sorry for your loss. Your family will be covered in my prayers during this time. Blessings in knowing Uncle George the loved the Lord and is with his savior today.

So sorry to hear about George's passing. George lived behind us and was a very kind neighbor. We used to see him walk around the block everyday in the summer, always having a smile on his face and waving as he went by in his white T-shirt and jeans. We missed seeing him walk by the past couple years, unable to as his health deteriorated. He would always let us use his wood for fires, pet our crazy, barking dog and talk to our children. He spoke fondly of his family and previous pets, especially his wife, whom he missed. He will be missed, we always looked foward to him coming back for the summer!
