Just a reminder,

Monday at 1PM is George's interment at the Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery.

I am unsure if there is a scheduled gathering afterwards, but I am sure we can all get together and tell George stories over a beverage at a minimum. All are welcome.

Thanks for sharing Brian. Too bad Texas is so far for me.


If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Brian thanks for the reminder.

I am going to try to break-away from work and be there.

Afterwards I will have to get right back to my office,
but I'd like a rain-check on a beverage toast to King George.

For those of you that were friends of George that could not attend his service today, here are a few pictures from his interment service at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery. (BTW...these pictures have the full blessing of George's wife Nicky)

Zep, Thank you for pictures. I was there in spirit. Literally walking out the door to be at the service when a client walked in unexpectedly.

Thanks Guy's.

I've been to one funeral that I didn't even know this person served in the military. It was over the top of any other funeral I've been to even they only came for a short period to honor their fallen brother. Yeah, it was really neat and something I will never forget.


Rest easy, George.

Nice place. First time I had ever been there.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Been a while Dave. Still raising monster greenies?

D.I.E.D. - We've missed you. How about starting a status update thread about you and your friend/neighbor JHAP?

Well it took way longer than I expected, but I finally put together enough segments to accurately convey George's final thoughts about ponds, fishing, life and friendships.

Its a little long, but I don't care. I have hours more video that did not make it into this video. And if you hoist a Shiner Bock with me, I might show you the out takes, but you better be ready to laugh and cry a lot.

Here you go, George as he was; Enjoy

Sorry about that, I fixed the embedding issue. It should play in place.

Brian, not only is it a lot of work and time putting together, creating and publishing a video but even more difficult when emotions are involved.

That was a great video and thank you for letting us get to know George a little better, for those like myself who never had the opportunity to meet him!

Thanks for taking the time and sharing!

RIP, George!

Brian that was really special. Thank you for putting it together and sharing it with us. I think I only met George 3 times, but each time he certainly left an impression on me. God Bless Him.
