  1. Marie, I pray that God will fill the void you feel in your heart today, and in the days ahead, with only good and happy memories of your beloved.
    We enjoyed the times we had with you and G.O. very much. And I’m sorry we left Pendaries about the time y’all got there. But we have fond memories of it and the friends we made there.
    God bless you richly and I pray He wraps you in His loving arms and gives you comfort and peace.
    Love in our Christ Jesus, Betty Tow

  2. Dear Marie, Sorry to learn of G. O.’s passing. He, like George, is in a better place. Don’t remember if I talked to you before I moved to Austin in March to be close to my daughter. I did spend the summer at Pendaries. I have an apartment on the 5th floor of an “over 60” apartment complex. I do miss Lubbock. Would love to hear from you when you have time.

  3. Marie, our thoughts and prayers for you. Loved the time we shared with you and G. O. at Pandaries.
    Sending love!
    Jim and Sharon Mathis

  4. Marie, Craig and I wanted to let you know how sorry we were about G.O. passing. Craig had known him for years when he was in business in Lubbock. Loved getting to know you in Pendarie. We will be praying for you in the days to come.
