Rick & Toni,
I'm so sorry to hear about George. I will always remember the time my car ran out of gas in front of your house and your dad was kind enough to help me. He always had a smile on his face and made you laugh. Heaven is now blessed. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time.

Barbara and family,
George was a great man and open his heart to all. He was coach to my brothers Tony and Dicky and he also was my coach for 1 year when they let girls play. We all went bowling every Saturday morning for years. He was like a second dad to Tony when he stayed with Lance. He was a special man and you all should be so proud of the great man he was. My prayers are with you all during this diffcult time and the days that follow.
