Winnie, you and George welcomed us into your lives no questions asked. From soft comments that we are all working together for God’s kingdom even tho we worked at different brands of Christian bookstores, to throwing wadded up wrapping paper at each other at Christmas, we are better people just having known you. We love you and your family Winnie.

George, we grew up side by side. You taught me how to drive, we played together every day, your Mom fed me milk and sandwiches at lunchtime. The milk was in a silver cup and the sandwiches served on a Crystal plate and I was an extra member of the family. You will be missed by many, but non more than me. I know not when I will join you, but I’ll be there sooner than you can imagine I guess, and “let the good times roll”. We can ride double on my bike and not get in trouble. We can skip rocks on the lakes of Heaven and not get in trouble. We even won’t be in trouble if you let me drive your Dad's car and you won’t have to take the blame when I bump another car. Keep a light burning for me. It won’t be very long now.

So very sorry to hear about George's passing. He was a wonderful man. When he spoke everyone listened. You always knew he loved the Lord and his family and he was willing to share that love with you. Winnie, you and your family are in our prayers. Ron and Sue Swain

Mr. Silk will always be remembered for his kindness, consideration, and heart for visiting and caring about others, even when he wasn’t in the best of health, himself. My Mom, Dorothy Crute, and also my husband and I enjoyed and appreciated his visits and prayers after Mom had medical issues. May the love & peace of God be with your family and with all those who will miss Mr. Silk.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Loved my Dad very much. He was such a sweet humble man. Taught me to water ski, bike ride and have a love for the water no matter whether it was the ocean, John Kerr Dam ( we loved saying that as kids) or the lake at Shenandoah Acres. Thanks for loving me unconditionally, I know it was a lot to do.
Walter Jessup left a message on February 5, 2022:
George was more like a brother than my nephew-in-law. We are of the same age and I have always thought of Winnie as my sister. When ever I visited George and Winnie, George would always have a smile on his face and when we parted he would always say, "I love you Walter". The memories I have of George will always be with me.
Winnie Silk left a message on February 5, 2022:
I thank God for this man who loved me for over 64 years. We both knew that God had chosen us for each other. He left his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren a wonderful example of loving others and showing them he cared for them.
