My condolences to George's family. I worked with him many years ago at KWTX and found him to be a nice, hard-working person.
I enjoyed his story about the snake being in the bed with him and Joyce.

Dear Sessler Family, I am so sorry for your loss. When we lose a love one in death it is never easy. During this difficult time may your family find comfort in Gods word the Bible that soon we will see our love ones again. -John 5:28,29
