I am so sorry for your loss.  Uncle George always made us feel welcome.  He did not say much but he always seemed to have a smile on his face.  We had some fun Family get togethers.  I remember him grilling and playing horseshoes, or hanging out with his sweet dog at their place.  My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
