    Dear Family:
    On behalf of Terri and I, plus you aunt Connie, we offer our heartfelt condolences over the loss of your father, and a wonderful man. He will always be remembered as a true gentleman, who loved his family dearly. He was sweet, scholarly, warm and loving, with a strong constitution. “Uncle George” will be sorely missed by all of us. We only regret that we didn’t get a chance to see him in the recent past.
    Your Cousin,
    Vince

    Mark, Renee and Denice: my sympathy to you and your families as you mourn your father. I have fond memories of Uncle George that I will always cherish. May you feel God’s peace and be comforted by Him at this time.

  5. I knew Mr. Fetko as a server at The Weils in Bainbridge. He was always polite, had a sense of humor, and we enjoyed talking with one another. Sometimes it was about sports, world events, and other times we just talked about our past and present lives. It was my pleasure to be a small part of his life and my prayers and sympathy are extended to his family.

Leave Your Condolence
