Dear Gene, So sorry to read about both your Mom and Dad's deaths. George was truly a good man. He always had a smile on his face at the New York State Office for the Aging. He was friendly, helpful and a joy to work with. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this very tough time in your life.

I offer my deepest and sincerest condolences to the Waugh Family. Brother and Sister Waugh were both pillars of faith and wonderful role models to so many of us. Today, I am saddened at such a great loss, but rejoice in knowing that George and Peggy will soon awake and be rejoined by all those whom they love and loved them in return. We serve an amazing loving God and his promises will come true. John 5:28 -Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice .... Con amor y sinceridad cristiana, Su hermana, Librada
