Dear Wanda and family;
I had the privilege and pleasure of working with George at the "A" gate at JetBlue Park. Both of us being retired law enforcement; there was always lots to chat about during the game days. We'd talk about our spouses and families and it always touched me to hear the love in his voice when he spoke about Wanda. Their's was a once in a lifetime love! George was also so pleasant and welcoming to the fans...many of whom would make sure to chat with George either on their arrival or when they were leaving. George left a lasting impression during his time on earth and he will be missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all as you journey through your grief. Sincerely, Suzanne (customer service for Redsox) and Tom
