Its always sad to lose a classmate and this one is no exception! He always had a inspirational message for me when our paths would cross, and I always appreciated that. God bless all of you as you try to adjust to life without him.

GE was always friendly and ready to make conversation with everyone. I especially remember him when he was new to our class. He was so eager to meet people. And he had a beautiful voice! Our class will miss him.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I was unable to make it to the funeral due to a prior commitment. GE was special and will always be in the hearts of the class of 59. RIP GE.
