"I remember attending George's birthday party a few years ago.  He was a joy at Charlie's Place.  I remember him dressing as Santa and letting the children come to his lap and asked them what they wanted from Santa.  He loved the kids.  he wanted to see the Golden Gate Bridge once again before he died s I bought a book with 100 pictures of the Golden Gate bridge.  He looked at it often at Charlie's Place. Sometimes I wonder what he was thinking when he looked at those pictures.  They made him happy and he made us happy.  So on what would have been his birthday I will say a prayer of thanksgiving for having known him and for his family who I know miss him him dearly."

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be;
So he put his arms around you and whispered, "Come to me George"
With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away;
and although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, a precious soul at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best."

"I am the Adult Services Librarian at the West Baton Rouge Parish Library. I never met Mr. George but I work often with his son Melvin Abbott who is one of our regular library patrons, and have met Melvin's  brother, Charles at First Aid Lemonade events. Heredity runs true, so I am sure that Mr. George was as fine a man as his sons are. My prayers for his rest and peace in The Lord, and for the serenity of his family."

"What is the Resurrection?

The Bible’s answer

In the Bible, the word translated as “resurrection” comes from the Greek a·na′sta·sis, which means “raising up” or “standing up again.” A person who is resurrected is raised up from death and restored to life as the person he was before.—1 Corinthians 15:12, 13.

Although the word “resurrection” is not in the Hebrew Scriptures, often called the Old Testament, the teaching appears there. Through the prophet Hosea, for example, God promised: “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; from death I will recover them.”—Hosea 13:14; Job 14:13-15; Isaiah 26:19; Daniel 12:2, 13.

Where will people be resurrected? Some people are resurrected to life in heaven to rule as kings with Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:1; Revelation 5:9, 10) The Bible calls this “the first resurrection” and “the earlier resurrection,” both expressions implying that there is another resurrection to follow. (Revelation 20:6; Philippians 3:11) This later resurrection will be to life on earth, which the vast majority of those brought back to life will enjoy.—Psalm 37:29."

"George was a very special person to us at Alzheimer's Services and Charlie's Place.  He brightened our day and loved to participate in the activities.  The staff even attended his family birthday party.  He will be missed by all."

"I am the Director of Charlie's Place, the Alzheimer's Services Respite Center.  George enjoyed spending days here, meeting friends, and participating in activities.  One of my fondest memories of him was the time he played "Santa" to the children in our intergenerational program.  He never hesitated about putting on the Santa suit or allowing the children to climb up on his lap and make their requests.    He was so lovable and it was one of my greatest privileges to have known him.  He truly touched my life."

"I wanted to share this poem with the family, and friends  that I found.  May God give you comfort.  I am certainly sorry for your loss.  He may be gone, but will never be forgotten.

I feel a warmth around me
like your presence is so near,
And I close my eyes to visualize
your face when you were here,
I endure the times we spent together
and they are locked inside my heart,
For as long as I have those memories
we will never be apart,
Even though we cannot speak anymore
my voice is always there,
Because every night before I sleep
I have you in my prayer."
