    Thank you for showing us what an amazing man George was – a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother. A caring man whose faith and family was everything, and whose smile and warmth was infectious to those around him. But it isn’t farewell, just goodbye for now.

    We are thinking of you all at this sad and difficult time – we are next door if you need anything at all, our door is always open.

  29. From Gina & Traian

    Dear Mari kids and Grand Kids, we join you on this sad day but great celebration of Gigi’s life, we pray that God will give you strength to pull through and past this day, hope to see you soon when allowed to visit, until we are “apart ” but we still together.

    Love you all Lots.

  30. Heartfelt service for the awesome man that Gigi is, and helped others become too.
    Our love, prayers and best thoughts go to Mari and the whole beautiful family.

  31. Although we could not be with you in person to mourn and grieve, we are still grateful that, through the live stream, we were able to celebrate Gigi’s life. The few memories I have of Gigi will not soon leave my head. A man who, above all, displayed his love to those around him through his words actions and behaviour.

    Love Anthony

  32. George was so full of love for everyone and he always helped others find a reason to smile. We are blessed and grateful to have known him. Our deepest sympathies and love to the family, and we hope you find peace and comfort at this difficult time. He will always be remembered, and always be with you.
    Thinking of you and sending love xx

  33. Praying that God brings you comfort in this time of morning.

    Gigi was a powerful man of faith, and I am sure that he was just like his father.

    Though we never got to meet Bunicu, the stories of his faith bring Gigi to mind. I am sure that as Bunicu served an example of faith to Gigi, Gigi serves a strong example of faith to his children and grandchildren who will continue his legacy.

    God Bless you and Keep you, Familia Groza

    So thankful for having unchiu Gigi in my life, and wish to be even half the leader that he was to not only his family, but friends and community.

  71. My heart breaks for you all. I pray God comforts and strengthens you all as you say see you later to an amazing man

  72. Deep colondolences, love and prayers to you Mary, Gabe and Melissa, Andrew and Bianca, and all the Groza family from Nais and Ian Grant! We were gutted to hear of George’s illness, and now death. He and you Mary, and Gabe cared for us so well as well as you crafted our stone benches for our new home. So we’re extremely grateful that every day we can actually touch George’s craftsmanship and remember the godly man that George was. Thank you Mary and Gabe, for all you did to bless us! It has also been my immense privilege to have worked as Andrew’s colleague for over 18 years – a spiritually-deep young man of wit, intelligence, passion, determination and deep integrity. George was I’m sure justifieably proud of his sone and their spouses and grandchildren. Though you rightly and deeply grieve for George, I know even now he’s being overcome by waves of adoration and worship for his Friend and Redeemer, as he sees Jesus face to face. Love to you all, Ian & Nais Grant. May you personally experience the arms of your loving heavenly Father as you greive and remember.

  73. I love you Great Uncle George ♡
    I know you are with the Lord now 🙂
    I love you ^^
    Thank you for being, a loving person.
    Kind, warm-hearted, joyful 😀
    GOD BLESS Your Soul

    1. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
      Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

  82. Jesus said that he would not leave you or forsake you, even if George is not with you in body, he will not leave you or forsake you”
    George will always look over your shoulder, smiling at you & comfort you when you are at your most vulnerable.

    1. A beautiful celebration of a wonderful Godly man! He leaves behind a remarkable legacy and he will get greatly missed! Our thoughts are with you all!
      May Gods comfort give you peace!
      Love David and Dana
