He was my high school sweetheart ... a strong, reserved but fun-loving football player. We had great times and cared about each other ... a lot. We stayed in touch after he graduated and went to West Point, but then he dropped out, and destiny called his name. I've never forgotten him ... and I never will. He never had a chance to become a dad ... but he would have been a great one. He never had a chance to become the man he could be ... but he would have been a good one. I'll remember him always, with thanks and love.

This year, 2005, you would have been celebrating your 40th Class Reunion with the LaFollette High School class of 1965. You and I attended school from the 1st grade until we graduated. You were a very nice boy and grew up to be a nice man who gave his life for his country. Thank you from my heart and those of your former classmates. You will be in our thoughts at our reunion this year.

We were a small high school class in comparison to many, the LaFollette High School class of 1965, so we knew each other pretty well! Fortunately for me, because of our last names, I got to sit with George in many classes in our high school years together -- and I can well remember our talks and laughs. He was the embodiment of strength, depth, gentleness and kindness. I don't think I have ever known a more gentle soul, nor anyone more loyal to friends, community and, ultimately, our country.

George, you have been greatly missed these many years. As we prepare to gather for our 40th year reunion, we salute you with loving and caring memories.

From a friend,

George was one of the nicest young men you would ever meet, he could light up a room with his smile, and his politeness. He died in Viet Nam, but he is remembered at every high school reunion. His kindness to others will always be remembered. God bless the sacrifice he gave for freedom.
