    I was George and Mariam’s pastor for several years when and after they joined Westport Baptist Church. It was my privilege to be their pastor. I visited them many times in their home and in the hospital. They were faithful Christians and church members. Pastor Mike Young

    George was a wonderful person I met at church. George sat in front of me and my husband every Sunday morning. I don’t think George ever got over losing Marion and he mentioned her every week when we talked. I’m thankful I got to know him and Marion. We have missed seeing George during the past few months. We are praying for Keith and family during this time of loss.
