JUDITH ANN GEORGE
September 8, 1965 August 16, 1989

We come here today to celebrate the life of Judith Ann George, the
fourth child bom to the late EIroy Antonio George, Sr. and Pauline Stevens
George. Judith was bom on September 8, 1965 in Fort Riley, Kansas
while her father was still in the U.S. Army.
"As Christians we know that death is not a period at the end of a sen-
tence. Death is but a comma, a pause in life's passage. Death can be painful
to the friends, the relatives and the bereaved. But so, too, is childbirth
painful to the mother, and at times she, too, cries out in pain. But then there
is time for celebration, a child is bom, a life is given."
The birth of each child is special, and so it was with Judith's birth.
The George family soon realized that Judith was extra-special; she was
handicapped. Undoubtedly, there were the inevitable questions: Why us?
What do we do? To the first the family answered, she is a gift from God.
To the second, we love her, we nurture her, we take care of her she is
a part of our lives.
Judith was an integral part of the family life with a personality all her
own. When you walked into the room where she was, you knew whether
she was glad to see you or not by the bright smile and outstretched
arms or by her solemn stare and silence. She made her likes and dislikes
known.
During her comparatively short years Judith's life continued to be a
focal point and a binding force for the family. Now that she is physically
gone from us, let us not lose sight of the love that bound us together as
family and friends. Let us then not dwell on her handicap but rather on
the love and caring which she brought out in each of us who knew her.
Judith, thank you for living and touching our lives.
