How Great Thou ArtOh Lord, my GodWhen I, in awesome wonderConsider all the worlds Thy hands have madeI see the stars, I hear the rolling thunderThy power throughout the universe displayedThen sings my soul, my Savior God to TheeHow great Thou art, how great Thou artThen sings my soul, my Savior God to TheeHow great Thou art, how great Thou artAnd when I think that God, His Son not sparingSent Him to die, I scarce can take it inThat on the cross, my burden gladly bearingHe bled and died to take away my sinThen sings my soul, my Savior God to TheeHow great Thou art, how great Thou artThen sings my soul, my Savior God to TheeHow great Thou art, how great Thou artWhen Christ shall come, with shout of acclamationAnd take me home,…

Kerri:Beautiful as always.It’s utterly perfect that I’m participating from a rental car while traveling on a business trip, waiting to catch a flight.I would guess that 90% of my conversations that I had with George over the last 25 years were under the exact same circumstances.A great partner, a great friend. (That’s not a common combination of traits!) Our skill sets matched well. He was all Balance Sheet and I was all P&L!!He is sorely missed.It was a genuine pleasure working with George. It’s a testament to his legacy as a dad that it continues to be a pleasure working with his kids.God bless you all.Godspeed, George.

At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you.If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. There are two ways to raise your hand. To use the Zoom feature, click on participants and the raise hand icon will appear on the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, if your video is on, we invite you to do this the old fashioned way and wave your hand in the video. Our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone.You can also share here, in the chat. The chat will be shared with the family as a virtual guestbook.

You all have made George's legacy such an honor and blessing to our Lord. He was truly "bigger than life" and made you feel like you were the most important person when you were with him. He was always willing to help,,support and participate. Music was one of our common bonds. He enriched my life and we are all going to miss him. We can live out the example he set for us. Bless you all!

I deeply appreciate both George and Susan. I knew George while they served on the Board for Lifewater International. George and Susan really connected with our projects in Romania, helping to bring clean, sustainable water and general support in many ways, and to many people. George and Susan left a legacy. I miss them and I appreciate knowing both of them
