Sending condolences to the Bailey family as well as our uncle. We will always remember your brave and caring heart. We are sad to see you go. There are so many lessons you taught us. The most important one was "Trusting and Believing in God". We will always remember how you taught us if we live by his word, we would enter into kingdom of heaven. You also reminded us of John 14:3, "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also". We sure did learn a lot and for that, we say thank you! You will always and forever remain in our hearts. 'You made it uncle George! We love you and you will be truly missed. Bobbie Jean, (Boogie) Janet, Shirley Ann, Barbara Ann and James (Mann).
