Char, Denise and the entire Schlung Family —
Words cannot express the sadness we feel right now for you and your family. We know how much your Dad was loved and what a wonderful Husband, Father and Grandfather he was. I know personally, I will miss his friendly voice on the other end of the phone when he called for you here at KGA. He is at peace now with your Mom and I know he will always be looking down on you. Eternal be his memory. Sending our thoughts and prayers to you now and in the days to come.
Denise & David Gaulin & Family
Loving prayers go out to Charlene, Jamie, Ashley, Jack and the entire Schlung family. The legacy, life and memories of this WONDERFUL man will live on forever through his loved ones… Rest in peace, George…
Thinking and praying for you at this difficult time and extending my deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved father and brother (Judy). Sincerely, Maggie Molidor
