    Debra, Jerry and I were saddened to hear the news of your Daddy George. I called him my Walmart biuddy. Your momma and daddy always felt like a part of our family. Enjoyed having them at family functions; our family enjoyed being a part of their celebrations as well. Your daddy will be missed.

    My heartfelt sympathy to all. George was a great part of the Keeton family and a friendly, humble good man and will surely be missed but I know he is happy to join his heavenly love ones and is amazed at the beautiful home Our Lord has prepared for him.

    Debra (Todd), Larry and Chris,
    George was a wonderful man. From conversations at the ball field to the post office and a million waves (sometimes several per day), he was a wonderful person and friend. My Granddaddy and Daddy thought a lot of him also. He will truly be missed. I wish you all the best through this difficult time. Prayers for you all.

    Debra and family, my heart breaks for you all. I always enjoyed seeing your Dad when he dropped by work. He was so funny. I still have the buckeyes he gave me and think of him every time I pick them up. Sending love and hugs to you all.
