In Loving Memory of George

Kassis Family,

Our deepest condolences on the loss of Uncle George.  We loved him very much and will miss him greatly.  He was a wonderful man who loved his family dearly and made anyone feel welcome in his home.

Dear Kassis family,

Sending you all love and strength to help you through this painful time. Uncle George was a remarkable man, admired and respected by all.

His loving and caring spirit was always seen in the great care he showed to his family and friends. A warm and gentle man, he was a constant source of support to the community. The hole his absence leaves behind may never be filled, but his legacy will live on.  May he rest on peace.

Rima and Megan Coates
