Ginny and Kim, George was one of the shining lights in our HS years. He was a handsome, brilliant, original young man. His brilliance and our era of youth led him to places that were and are hard to fathom. He made a difference in our lives. I had a long talk with him while visiting the UMC in Angola a few years back. I'm so glad I did. It was good. He will always be alive to all of us. God care for all of you.

Joe, Deb and Ginny, I am saddened by the news of George's passing and I am sorry for your loss. I have many pleasant memories of George, my asking him what it felt like to score 40 points in a high school basketball game, running into Mr. Shoup and George at the 5 & 20 Country Kitchen near Shipshewana and then going together to Topeka for the Angola vs. Westview High School basketball game, and his sense of humor and his laugh. Those good times outweigh the tough times I was with him and I will always remember my friend George.

I just heard the sad news of George's passing. I knew him out in Boulder, and for years he was my best friend. He was a creative genius and profoundly insightful guy of great heart & depth. My sympathy to the Shoups, and a fond farewell to George G. George George Dillard Hartsburg MO
