    I am so sad to learn of the passing of George. I followed his story on NextDoor from the day of his accident when Gina posted “to anyone who prays….” I prayed daily, I sent cards, I truly believed that George would recover. I see from the information here that George was a remarkable man who led a full and active life, he will be missed by many. In my own way, I will miss him too. I will continue to pray for you, Diane, Kelly, all of his family. I will pray that you find the strength to go through this difficult time and that you find peace in all the memories you have of George. Also please find comfort in the memory that he united a community of strangers in prayer for him.
