As I sit at my desk working at Gaither International in Puerto Rico, it goes without saying that I wouldn't be where I am today if it were not for George Gaither. He gave me my start in my career. More than that, on a personal side, I will always remember with joy the holidays at the Gaither household when I was young. Thank you! George, you will always be loved. My sincerest condolences to the entire Gaither family. Love, David

For all of us who worked with him, George was our leader, our moral compass, our true north. In a world of compromise, George created a place where we could—and were expected to—seek perfection. In a world driven by money, George was driven to discover the truth and to report the truth. George spoke truth to power, telling Latin American presidents exactly where they stood. He did so with the full knowledge of the risks to his fortune, and indeed, of the fortunes of all of us who worked for him. It was not a choice for George. It was just the way he worked. He led an exemplary life. At the height of his prestige and power, he remained grounded and true to himself, his family, and his extended family of Gaither International. George was a father to me. I received many of the same lectures as his children, almost as many times. George Jr. and I used to recite them, in jest. But they were locked into us, and helped us make sense of things. Two years before my own father died, he met George and we all had dinner in Mexico City. After dinner that night, my father told me, “This is a good man. He can teach you things that I can’t. You’re in good hands.” I can’t mourn George’s passing. For some years now, he has been a voice on the other end of the telephone, and a voice inside of me, guiding me to better decisions and helping me make sense of this world. George’s voice is still inside us.

I loved Mr. and Mrs. Gaither so much.They knew about all my problems and always gave me good advice. I have never knew two people like them and am sure I never will. They both always told me how important I was to them and that I was part of their family and I knew they loved me also. Mr. Gaither and my grand daughter (Emma) became fast friends...she absolutely adored him, and he loved her also. I know that they are in heaven togeather . He had to be the smartest man I ever knew...In my eyes he was absolutely great and he used to always tell me Penny youre great what would we do without you. They both loved their family so much and was so proud of them all. So Mr. and Mrs. Gaither until we meet again you will always be in my heart and I love you both.
