Dear Karen, David and I are so sorry to hear about George's passing. I know it has been a tough year for you! David said he remembered meeting George at Georgia Southern his freshman year. They reconnected in Warner Robins, and you have always been good friends to us! We will miss his smile and his playful spirit! Take care of yourself and your son. We hope the many good memories you have will crowd out the tough ones. Love you! David and Lori Campbell
