It's hard to remember a time when I didn't know George. 38 years working at the Housing Authority, the last 16 years he was Maintenance Supervisor. The Housing Authority family has a piece missing. Our thoughts and prayers to all your family learning to go on without you. My best friend is now a guardian angel. Miss you George - Cathy Dodson

When tomorrow starts without me,please try to understand.That an angel came and called my name,and took me by the hand. The angel said my place is ready in heaven far above. And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But when I walked through Heavens Gates, I felt so much at home, for God looked down and smiled at me, Welcome Home. So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart. IN Loving memory of my nephew,George Ayres. I know you are celebrating in heaven and free of pain. So glad I got to visit wirh you the last few months .
