George was very proud of his mechanical heart valve he received in 1993 from St. Jude. At the family's request, please donate to this wonderful place and give others a chance to enjoy all of God's precious gifts. Please consider becoming an organ donor which is very dear to our hearts. Never be the reason someone has to pray for peace. 

  

The family would like to thank each doctor, nurse and medical personnel that has worked with George these past few years. We would also like to thank Jim Crawford, James McDavid and Eddie McDavid for all they did for George during his illness.
