There is so much saddness over the loss of yet another of Stoutsville and Amanda's and Oakland's 'family fathers'.  I think my first and maybe the last memory I have of you George is hanging out in the fish house with Joe and the others frying fish. I wonder if you and the other Sharp fellows are frying fish in heaven. R I P. and save some fish for us.  Thoughts and prayers to your family. Warm their hearts with memories of times gone by.
