“George was a major part of my life for many years,” Sammy said. ”He was my friend and mentor and I wrote this song with him in mind a while back and hoped that he one day might record it. I couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to put it out. God Bless you, Possum and see you again someday my friend.”
