I have so many fond memories of Uncle George. I always loved our talks on the weekends in the backyard. He always told “dad jokes” and would make you laugh whether the jokes were funny or not. He was very much present in my life. He cheered the loudest at my graduation, made sure to take a million photos for my prom and proudly video taped my wedding. I’m thankful for all the memories that I had with him.
