Dear Brother George, I'm gonna miss hearing your voice...I'm gonna miss seeing your smile...I'm gonna miss arguing with you all the time about everything...In short brother dear...I'm gonna miss the s**t out of you. I hope I was able to comfort you some in your time of need. I hope you are with Mom, Lisa & Dusty and by the lords side. But, most of all...I hope you are free from the pain and torture you endured before you passed away. You will never be forgotten and I will treasure our time together till the day we meet again. I love you brother. Rest in Peace. <3

Dear Sylvia Family: So sorry to see George (Peanut) had died, you've had several losses in the past few years. Still remember the good times back when your family lived next to me and have some pictures of you at the beach having a great time.

Well George or I always called you peanut growing up in presidential heights we had a lots of good times when we were younger running around doing stupid things kids do and as we grew older (yea doing good) your favorite saying but we knew you had other issues going on. Your fishing trips were your glory days just wish you would of taken some of my advise growing up but being that young and making that much money at the time and being that time of era you can tell a horse what pond to go drink in but it's up to him to do it. We al have our demons to deal with and sometimes they are just stronger than we are. Wish I could of stopped by and said hello used to drive by your place all the time but I guess I just wanted to remember you the last time I saw you skinny thin long haired . Always saying doing good bent the truth a little but that was always you hope you find the peace you were always chasing.

What shift of genius, ever so slight
to witness darkness turning into light?
How so deplored that darkness be
What joy and reverie to usher it free!

Hey Peanut - it's really something isn't it! Enjoy yourself and be free ... really free! Love L
