Elizabeth, Georgeís wife of 23 years.

Dadís life was infinitely enriched by Beth.

In his declining months, she also worked very very hard to take care of him. Thanks to her, he was able to live at home until his final hospital stay.

Among other things, George was a gifted artist.
After a long successful career in medical illustration, he turned, in retirement, to oil painting.

Dad painting

As he grew older and his faculties began to fade, painting began to frustrate him. This was one of his last paintings.

It was for his wife, Elizabethís, church.
