To George's wife and family,
Don and I were not aware of the service for George until we received an e mail and read on Saturday. We were enroute to Blytheville and as we were talking, I asked Donnie did he know anything about the Douglas twins. As far as he knew, George lived in Jonesboro and John was still in Osceola. He began to tell me how he, Billy Hill and the Douglas boys played tennis years ago. His memories were spoken with warmth as they grew knowing each other in their formative years. On the other hand, I recalled knowing the boys after I married Donnie and we attended church with them. As a young girl I remember their Dad working at Missco business. When I drive through Black Oak, I always recall our attendance of George and Sally's wedding at the little church that still stands there. It is with sympathy as I write this to the family. Nothing more, to me can be said about a person if the person was a Christian. That says it all. I know from comments that the Douglas boys were thought of as one many times and since we are parents of twins we understand that way of thinking. Others can not distinguish which name goes with which person. However, God sees us as individuals. I'm sure God is glad to have George home with him. I pray you will be thankful for his life in yours and grow even closer in your relationship,with God because of George. We are thinking of all of you in this your present time of loss, but joyous in knowing George has a forever home that is pleasing to God. Sincerely, Don and Chris Shoemake
