Words of Remembrance – we will have the journal from Brigitte's celebration for family and friends to offer words of remembrance of George.  You can write something in the journal and/or bring along a photo, prepared message or memento to add to the book.  (Pages are 5x8, tape/adhesive will be provided)


In lieu of flowers……Plant a Tree for George!  As most of you know, George’s favorite get-away place was the cabin he built in Big Bear in 1970.  Our family has so many wonderful memories in the “Braun’s Berghaus” in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains with the clear blue skies and magnificent pines.  Together we can help replant after so many trees were destroyed in the recent wildfires.  If you would like to plant a tree in George’s memory please visit
