George and I were cousins, only about a year apart, which made us pretty close in our younger days. We went to Lake Erie many times with his parents and brother. My most remembered event was watching The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show at our house. And, I remember how much he LOVED his Aunt Mitzi's (my mom's) sloppy joes. RIP cuz. ❤️

I am so sorry to hear that my cousin George has passed. It's funny how we remember each other as children at Grandma & Grandpa Palko's house. My mother was Ethel Palko Steh. George sent cards to my mother in past years. I often visited his Dad, my Uncle George when he lived in Brookfield, OH where I live. I lost my husband to cancer 3 years ago April 30. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you all.
