I met George in Nepal in the fall of 2017 where he volunteered in a dental clinic with Global Dental Relief. He was so sweet with the kids in the clinic. He fell in love with the people and culture. We shared many laughs over meals. He had a big heart and was a light to those he met there. Rest in Power George.
