EULOGY

l bert Carton George was born on May 6, 1948 to Constantia
C Adina Amey George and Albert Emanuel George in St Thomas,
Virgin Islands. Albert, or Al, as he was affectionately called, was a
graduate of the Charlotte Amalie High School's class of 1968. He served
in the United States Armed Forces from 1968 to 1970 when he was
honorably discharged after completing a tour in Vietnam. Albert was
employed as part of Charlotte Amalie High Schools kitchen staff until his
unexpected death on July 10, 1995.

Albert often put the needs of others before his own. Though he had
no children, Albert guided and advised his nieces and nephews on the
proper and godly way to live. He spoke often of the accomplishments
of the children of CAHS, often saying that he could be no prouder of
them if they were his own. Albert lavished praises on the children who
were part of Governor Schneiders Inauguration, mentioning how proud
he was that the future leaders of the Virgin Islands had handled
themselves so well.

Albert had a great sense of humor. He never failed to make
someone see the humorous side to one's problems. Albert made others
smile in spite of their sorrows, and lifted the spirits of family and friends
with his humor.

Albert was a Seventh Day Adventist and had a strong belief in God.
He encouraged and enlightened his siblings spiritually in the recent loss
of their father, mother and brother. He would often say, "If we prove
faithful and let nothing distract us from the Kingdom of God, we will see
our family again." Albert told his siblings that these were the last days and
the fight would get harder because the rewards were so dose at hand.

Despite our recent losses, the George family still holds steadfast to
God's everlasting power. We know that "When They Ring the Golden
Bells", we will see our loved ones again, and only then will there be
"Peace in the Valley".

Albet,

I tel you th tthe chdren of ysy are walking inthe ral ofter th they creed

is aout toblow. Their homes will h upon their eads and thms become their tobs I say that
their thoughts their syi, their qmu ls thdr codn i books and dUir work a ing
but chai dragging them beca hey are too week to pu the load

But the children of tomorrow a the ones cal by life and they follow it with stedy aeps d
heads held hih They are dawn of new ontiers. No smoke wil veil theireyes and no jie of
hai wil dron out their voices. They are few in number, but the difference is as between a rain
of what ad a sack of hy. No one knows t but they know each other. They are ke the
su its widh ca see ad her ach other, not ke caves which can not hea r eo They ar the
seed drop by the had of God in the field, breaking through its pod ad waving a sapling leabefore
the Bce ofthe sun ht shal gow into a mighty tree, its root in the heart of the earth ad its brahe
high in the sky.

I've learned a lot from you.

Love, your brother, Alvin

On behalf of the CAHS administration, faculty, staff ad student body, eress
sincre condolences to the family of Mr.Albert George. We at CAHS share in your
grief at the sudden loss of one of our staff members. We pray that God will offer
comfort and strength to bear the sorrow.

We at CAHS will certainly miss Mr. Geore, who always had a smile and a warm
greeting for everyone. All who ate in our school cafeteria or worked alongside
Mr.George in our school kitchen can test to the fact that he was always willing to
lnd a helping hand, worked vry hard as long as he was able, and never uttered a
harsh word while he toiled. He was simply a kind, sincere, ad likeable co-worker.

Though Mr. George scaled hoe this Masterquiteunexpctedly to many of
us, we are thankful for the timeGod gave him to spend with us. He made his mark
in this life, and we will always remember his goodness and lovingkindness
Certainly, we wil miss him.

Mr. Albet, your CAHS family will continue to ask that your soul rest in everlastin
peace. We hope to see you again one day.
