I am to hear of George's passing. I had the privilege of working with him at Schewel Furniture for many years. He taught me a lot about selling furniture. He was my coworker and friend too. He was man of great conviction and character. He will be greatly missed. Trust in the Lord and He will get you through this difficult time.
