I always remember the Christmas when he hired a Santa Claus for us and then went out to the roof to make raindeer noises..that was George in a nutshell.

You could not ask for a better uncle than George. I remember the drive to Mt Pleasant to to see George and Frances, a visit with them was always to look forward to. George would tell good stories, and Frances always had sweets for us kids.

Dear Helen:
Although we have never met, I want to express my sincere sympathy to you and your family. I have known George for many years, but most recently, by playing cards with him at the Isabella County Senior Center. I always enjoyed his good natured humor. I am sure he will be missed by many here in Mt. Pleasant.

Some of my fondest chilhood memories are of Uncle George and Aunt Francis coming to Vermont to spend time with his brother Arthur, my Dad, and family. We always got to do special things and ride in Uncle George's big car. I picture Aunt Francis waiting with open arms to welcome him. They are together again. May god bless them. Lovingly, Your neice, Ann
