Family and Friends of George Johnson unite to ease the financial burdens from the illnesses subsequent loss of his wife Eileen.

George and Eileen Johnson have been an inspiration to their friends and family for as long as we can remember. Their children have big shoes to fill to be half the parents they have been. Theirs is truly a story of love, hard work, commitment and dedication. George and Eileen are both admired by many for their faith, love, kindness, and selflessness.

The last ten years have been increasingly difficult for them, and their family. Eileen's increasing illnesses, car accident, kidney transplant, and more have made the last decade a difficult one. They never complained about the cross they have had to bear. Instead they carried it together with strength, love, and resiliency. After an extremely long winter, difficult both physically and emotionally, Eileen passed away on March 18th, 2012.

In addition to trying to sort through the grief, George has a huge financial burden to manage. There was no life insurance to cover all of the extenuating debt from the funeral, burial, and extensive medical bills. We can help ease the financial burden by raising some money to support him. We know this will in no way lessen the grief, or close the hole in his heart, but it will at least lessen the financial worries and remove the stress and worry of debt. Thanks so much for taking the time to consider this donation.

We do ask that you not mention this to George, as he does not know we are doing this for him. It will be nice to surprise him at the close of our fundraiser. He will be able to then see any comments you leave on the page. If you have any questions, or would like to make a donation but are not comfortable doing so via computer, you may contact us at or

Much Love and Thanks,

George's Children and their families
