    My heart, thoughts and prayers are with the Whittaker Famil and my Auntee Olinda and Family. I was saddened to hear of the death of Uncle George(Freakafrat), Uncle George I will always remember the times and laughs we have shared during our lives. You will sadly be missed and Crisfield will not never be the same especially the Ole Folks Village sitting under the trees enjoying life. God has called you home and you are now joining your Mom and Pop and sister in Heaven. Heaven is rejoicing cause they know they have something on their hands entering the Kingdom.

    Until we meet again Uncle/Friend Freakafrat…. SIP: We love you!!
    Sorrowfully Submitted,
