Rest in peace George, My condolences to the family. George was a very sweet man and very respectable to me. I had the pleasure of meeting him when he was working on the Verdean Gardens property.

George was a nice and caring person. He was always there when you needed help with something. But I can say my late husband Rick and him could talk for hours and he would say I loved talking with George. Rest in peace we will miss you.

To Diane, George, Lezan & Family: May God give you strength and his loving arms at this difficult time. You guys are family to me. George was a wonderful, kind-hearted man who was very talented, hard working, smart and who used his talent to help others. I'll never forget what he did with my parents' house. He took a house that was dilapidated and turned it into a masterpiece, which he did for many homes. Rest in heavenly piece, my friend. I will never forget all you did for my family.
