Today, Montgomery County Daily received a comment from Debbie Hargreaves (of Texas) in a previous entry about George Sauer, stating that he had died. I then called Wilma Sauer and she confirmed that the sad fact was true. Wilma was in good spirits since she had lived a life filled with love with George, though her concerns now were mostly about her family. She told me that there will be a memorial service at Seven Locks Baptist Church in Potomac. However, first there have to be arrangements made with her children, which include long trips from California and England.
Debbie Hargreaves' comment is the following:
"Thank you for giving him a special award. Sadly, he lost his battle with cancer last night, Wednesday, September 29, 2010. George Sauer was a fine man. He was also my Uncle. I will miss his wonderful voice and his intelligent wit."
I will keep all of you posted as more decisions are made, so we can all give our last respects. Wilma Sauer's phone number is 301-762-7260.
