I am sorry for your loss; please accept my sincere condolences. We all look forward to the end of all pain, suffering, death and the renewed Paradise earth.-Revelation 21:3,4. Most of all we long to see the fulfillment of the resurrection hope(Acts 24:15)when Jesus Christ, with the aid of God's holy spirit, will raise all those who are now sleeping in death; restoring them back to life with the hope of eternal life on the renewed Paradise earth.-John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. Until that blessed time comes true; may Jehovah God continue to comfort and bless your family, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Tucker. May your memories of him and the Bible-based hope of the earthly resurrection comfort you at this time. (Acts 24:15) Our thoughts are with you in the coming days and weeks.

I was saddened to hear that George had passed away, but what helped bring comfort was to find that the Bible speaks of a time when death will be done away with:

Isa. 25:8, 9: “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. . . . And in that day one will certainly say: ‘Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.’”

Also at John 5:28, 29: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”

I know you will still experience pain, grief, and sorrow but I hope that these scriptures will bring some measure of comfort to you.
