My sympathy to your family. As a student athletic trainer at LCHS, I would see George in the training room. He was the definition of STUDENT athlete. He always put his education in front of his athletics. I knew he would go far in life! RIP

Our sincere condolences for the loss of your brother George.  I am so sorry to hear. What an amazing man he was. Suicide is hard to grasp for most of us and even more so for the survivors left to grieve and ask why, is heartbreaking.  Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers and that you are not alone.  You have each other and you have friends and family who deeply care.

Please accept my sincere condolences. I worked with Doc in Afghanistan from 2013 to 2017. He was great to work with,  and I really learned a lot from him. One of the things I enjoyed the most during my time in Afghanistan was roasting coffee beans with Doc. We sure made some awesome coffee. I'll treasure those memories forever.

To say I enjoyed every second we worked together these past seven years would be an understatement. Great coffee, always big laughs, and a million memories. I had and still have unconditional respect for you. You will be greatly missed.

I'm a first year (1L) law student at Vermont Law and am here, in part, to George's efforts.  I was anxious to leave Kabul and start the second-half of my life, but I began to doubt myself terribly.  "Doc," encouraged me to stick to the plan and made a point of checking-up on me from time to time.  I owe you one, George.  Thank you.

My sincerest condolences to the family.

My heart is broken. I knew the Smith family very well. My memories are of Leadville, of snow, of innocence, of happiness, and of youth. And then we grew up and Life captured us. Little bonfires popping up when we least expected them. And now, for some of us, definitely for George, the kind of fire with arms too long to jump back from.
I wish you peace because I know George is at peace. And I wish you love, because I still have love that springs from many, many years ago and it has never diminished.

On behalf of the Drabinski family I would like to extend our heart felt love to George's family and all the Smiths wherever they may be.
I have vivid fond memories of George from childhood visits both in Southern California and at the Smith Ranch where we reveled in each others company.
The last time we talked he thanked me for showing him how to throw a curveball when we were kids, which is funny because to this day I really can't throw a curveball.
RIP George and you can play on my team anytime.
