Lorraine and Shelly , when I was a kid your mom and dad were like a second set of parents to me as they were to many kids. In the last few years I've allowed myself to be so busy I've lost touch and for that I am truly sorry. However I feel very blessed to have had someone like George in my life growing up.   Love and prayers to you all.
 P.s.  Gods gonna have some great Polish Pickles this year.

Dear Juanita & family,
So sorry to hear of the passing of George, I have many fond memories of our adventures when our children were in high school.  The kids weren't the only ones who had fun. Memories are precious. Take care.

Mr. Olsheski was a great person. Always willing to help out in any way he could. He raised a good family. Friendly, outgoing with a pleasant personality. He will be missed on this Earth as he goes to the next level.
May God surround the family during this time of grief.

Juanita, Shelly, Lorraine & family . . . Hard to put into words the sorrow we feel on losing our friend, George.  He & Juanita have been part of our lives many years, you two taught Don about "hugs".  We know he moving on to a better place, but we will miss him here.  He was a great soldier in all ways.  May he rest in peace, his work here is done.
Love you all,  Don & Darlene

Dear Ones,
I wanted you to know you are still in my thoughts and prayers.
George seemed to always have a smile on his face and a sparkle in his eyes. I smile just thinking about him. We know that death is a part of life, but it is still difficult to say goodbye to our loved ones this side of heaven. May our Lord and Savior be with you and draw you close to Him.
Love and prayers,
Regina (Clady) Evans
