    George was my sixth grade Sunday School teacher and was one of a faithful group of men who served me and my cadre of youthful friends at Walnut Street. Every time I read of the homegoing of one of these faithful men I ask myself if I am serving younger boys and men the same way these men modeled Christ to me. It is a convicting question.

    Blessings to you Marian, Lyle, and David. I am thankful for the memory of George's faithfulness.

         My sincere sympathy to you in the loss of your dear husband.   I know he is in heaven but I also know it will be lonely for you.   I have many pleasant memories of you and George at RGBI.    George built a cabinet for our mobile home bathroom,  and I enjoyed his many Bible studies.   Our work days at RGBI were enjoyable.

    Sincerely,   Evelyn Daum
