Farewell to three heroes and friends.
Their dedication, commitment and smiles will be missed.
George’s passions were many, including anything related to Disney, history, and architecture. He also kept a close follow on his teams; the Braves, Falcons, and Yellow Jackets. George was also passionate in being optimistic and caring for others. Any restaurant server who ever waited on him can attest to this with the gift they received from him; a specially designed George Blake straw paper star. But his biggest passions were for his family and for his country. He loved both deeply and fiercely.
Mark, a founding partner of Nadler Biernath, was an accomplished attorney and an encyclopedia of knowledge on all things related to special needs law. He worked with Special Needs Cobb to counsel parents about the intricacies of caring for a loved one with special needs. His law partner, Kim Martin, serves on SNC’s Board.
Sandra was the mother of one of our group home residents, Cassie, who was also an alumna of our Respite Program. One of our group homes, Cassie's Corner, was named in her honor. Even after Cassie passed away, Sandra continued to dedicate her time and talents to Special Needs Cobb, supporting our fundraising efforts and donating her beautiful handmade quilts to our medically fragile group home. Sandra's husband and Cassie's father, Darrell Tapp, was a past Board Chair for the organization.
