    Elaine,
    I am so sorry for the hurt in your heart over the loss of your George I met y’all in the hospital and had the privilege of providing care to George. He was such a sweet man . I know your heart is so broken. My prayer is that you will have comfort from God, family and friends today as I know this will be a very hard day. God bless you and give you an added measure of strength today and in the coming days.
