  2. Allen Miller says:

    Denice and family,
    When our two congregations merged in 2018 I was assigned to the “Oliver” group, little did I know how that would effect me me!

    Being George’s assistant was truely one of the great privledge’s of my life, always will remember his infectious smile and personality.

    Always giving way to allow my opinion and such, when I would be thinking that a decision may be beyond my scope, he would let me decide and always treated me so well.

    To say I will miss him is a massive understatement!

    You all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.
