George Drake Died


George Drake died this morning. He was 93 years old and had been living in Denver for the past few months as his health was failing. George was retired from the old Public Service Company and most recently was the greeter at Wal Mart in Frisco. George was a on-fire Christian and would greet people with "Welcome to Wal-Mart. Do you know Jesus?" People who knew him regardless of their own religious beliefs always liked the fact that he was a strong believer. He was never obnoxious and was always quick with a story or the latest joke. He would always corner me about how the world was going to hell because of the ACLU and the Pro-Choice crowd. He always talked about his dream of passing on and going to heaven to see Jesus. I guess he got his wish this morning. I will miss him.
