George delivered milk to my grandparents store in Hemlock, B&A market, Leslie and Thelma Batey. I was preschool to elementary ages during that time. George was always so friendly to everyone. He also delivered milk to my other grandma, Leona Butler, in Greentown. Great memories, back on the day! My prayers are with all of you, God bless!

Dearest Darla, Jerry and family, My prayers and deepest sympathy are with you. Although the physical distance between us, Uncle George always reached out by phone to keep in touch...our conversations always brought me closer to my dad. You are in my prayers with a special prayer on Saturday as you celebrate his life and legacy...Love Patty and family💋❤
