Margaret/Family, I'll always remember the great friendship between George and my brother Daniel Oliver in high school and when Daniel lived with the Thomas' for short while and worked with George for Mr. Thomas. My brother always had a warm friendship with George, especially since they both were in the timber profession. My warmest sympathy to U'All. Smith Oliver
