I thank Jesus that I was able to have known this gentleman for several years. I thank Jesus for a good Christian man to have made an entry into my heart. It was my pleasure George. To God be the glory!

Mom says that when Uncle George was born, everyone in Eastland and the surrounding community said, "George Cazee has got a boy!" It was a big deal, because there had been five girls in succession born to George and Velma. As it turns out, it was truly a big deal. George was a loving and faithful husband to his sweetheart Edith, and a wonderful daddy to his three children. As a little girl, I remember seeing Uncle George mostly at our big family reunions at Grandma and Grandpa Cazee's house. There was a calm and peaceful presence about him, and always a generous and loving smile. No matter what phase in life I was going through (childhood through adolescence to adulthood) I always felt accepted and loved. His faith in God was evident in word and deed. Uncle George, you have left a legacy of God's love to many. Thank you.

I will miss hearing you laugh, and your quirky sense of humor.
I will miss sitting at your feet in the parlor, and holding your hands when you were feeling down.
I will miss you telling me I was beautiful multiple times a day.
I will miss your reaction when you saw how much food was put on your plate, and how you thought I cooked enough for an army.
I will miss our daily research about everything from hummingbirds, to Greek yogurt.
I will miss looking for new filters on Snapchat, and the way it made you laugh to see them.
I will miss answering the phone and saying Cazee residence during dinner, and the excitement on your face because you already knew it was Debbie.
I will miss you...

Bro George, you were one of a kind and I love you dearly, but I know the last months you have missed Sister Edith and I am so happy the angels took you to heaven to be with her. Will miss both of you especially in service at the church when you helped the Pastor with his thoughts I thought that was wonderful.. . Love and prayers to the family..
