Thank you, Tracy. Dad loved helping teach the 2nd grade children. He always tried to tie an art project into the lesson plan. Jessica Stack Gregory

Thank you, Jim and Carole.
Dad did love sharing his plants. He called it splitting..... and many "splits" went to family and friends. He'd be honored to know the bush survived and is named after him.

Thank you, Jane.
Dad was very active til he was 93. No hill was going to stop him, lol. He felt close to God and nature when working in the garden.

Dad certainly loved you!!! He would get soooo happy when you talked with him. Dad enjoyed his care at Waterstone, everyone being so nice and upbeat. I know Dad is dancing in the next life.

George was my 2nd grade Sunday School teacher at Buncombe St. way back in 1972. He was such a kind, gentle person. Tracey Hannon

George was so special that it's hard to put into words.  He was so talented, but also so humble.  Being around him and Betty always brought a smile to my face and a warmth in my heart.  The more I learned about George, the more I was in awe of him.  He shared with me some of his writings about his early life, and each one left me wanting more.  I also know how much George loved his flowers. He shared one with my wife and me a few years ago and we planted it in our front yard and we named it "George". It has bluish purple blooms on it now, and every time we see it  we think of George and Betty.   During this pandemic we haven't been able to stay in touch, but George and Betty have been on our minds.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Betty and all her family.

I spent lovely hours with George in his charming garden. He was so resourceful and creative with his plants and was always willing to share. A visit once to our magnolia garden in his 90’s, and he wasn’t going to take the big hill. Before we knew it, he was there with no problem. His writing about his childhood charmed us, revived history, and always had a little surprise. His enthusiasm with life and love of plants and people, was an inspiration. Betty was the perfect companion, editing his writing, enjoying his garden, supporting with love, and mirroring that great sense of humor and joy of life.

George truly was one in a million! He was a wonderful servant of God, an amazing husband and father to his daughters. He was the picture perfect family man. He Always had a smile on his face and tapping shoes to music. He knew how to make others smile and feel so loved and appreciated. His spirit will remain in us all. We love and miss you dearly, George! Thank you for allowing us to care for you in your final years. Till we meet again. Prayers be with Betty, Anne, Jessica and all your family and friends who will truly miss you. 

With deepest love and sympathy,
Your Waterstone On Augusta Family
