Please share a photo, special memory or note in celebration of George's life, so we can build a testament to his grace, wisdom, humour and boundless love.
As we bid farewell, we embrace the words he so frequently shared and lived every day by...

We can always start living – it’s never too late!
– Helen Lowrie Marshall
