  1. Our sincerest condolences upon hearing of the passing of Cousin George. Although I only had the pleasure of meeting him and Cousin Helen Lenora once, both my mother Carol and Aunt Jan always spoke so highly of both of them, and enjoyed their visits in Amarillo.

    We pray that his family finds solace in the knowledge that he has now joined Helen Lenora in Everlasting life.

  2. We are so sorry we are not able to attend the service for George. His son, Tommy, was our son in law. Our daughter, Melissa Radzikowski Haddox, and grandchildren, David and Kelly Haddox and Emily Haddox, all of Cypress, TX, will all miss him as will we. George was a kind and loving Christian man.
