So sorry to hear about George and to have lost touch. We remember fondly our association at Westminster Village and fun at Fort Myers Beach.

I am heart broken, we jokingly shared George as our "Husband" as my name before I remarried was Kay Totten and Kaye and I have had that joke at the center of our two Kay (Kay) Totton (Totten)s for nigh on to fifty years. Kaye, George and their family and I have shared so much over the years being involved with racing, the Pacers, the Colts or many other public and personal events.
My love and heart go out to Kaye, Donna, Susan, Brian and Deanna, Jimmy and all the grandkids and great grand kids. 💔✝
