Dear Family; please accept my sincere apology for the typo in my condolence note. I hope "GB" will forgive me too. My fingers don't always cooperate with my mind, but I pray you know my thoughts were sincere.

Very sorry about GB. He was a very nice man and I had known him for many years. He will be missed. He was a very gentle soul and I have fond memories of him from Sunday school class and from seeing him in church for many years. May God be with all of you at this difficult time.

I was so sad to hear of G.B.'s passing. I know he has had severe health issues for quite a while and we must try to find comfort in knowing he will no longer suffer and is with God at this time. Let us all celebrate a life well lived by an extremely good and well liked man. I have known G.B. my entire life and knew him as always up lifting, kind, gentle, and truly an all around tremendous human being. I know he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. You are in my heart, thoughts, and prayers at this most difficult time of grieving. God bless you all.

Dear Juanita and family, Barbara and I were very sorry to hear of GB’s death. We will pray that all of the good memories you shared over the years will be a comfort to you in the days ahead. GB and I first met on the very first day of school in Mrs. Parker’s first grade class. Mrs. Parker was a stern disciplinarian and if you were caught talking, a ruler was quickly applied to an upturned palm. I believe GB and I may have been victims of such justice. GB and I also continued to keep in touch through our association in the Ruritan Club. He will be missed. Hugs, Carl and Barbara Jensen

Twenty-some years ago the youth group got to enter a float in the Great Bridge Christmas parade. GB donated a flat-bed trailer for them to build their nativity set on. I took my daughter out to his farm when they were working on it and remember talking to him about his farm and he patiently answered every question. When I asked how big his farm was, he nonchalantly point to a row of trees I could barely see and said that was one side and then pointed in another direction and indicated a distance that was equally far away. I was incredulous and said it must be hard to work a farm that big. He laughed and said he didn't work it anymore, he let other people do that. After that I always made sure to seek him out after the service to say hi. He always laughed at my corny jokes and I'm sure going to miss him. A nicer man never walked among us.

GB and Jaunita have always been the sweetest two people I have had the pleasure to know. I will miss seeing him and getting hugs he was a gentile giant. ❤️❤️❤️
