So sorry to hear of George's passing. We lived next to George and Anita in "lower Dunlapsville" for several years. We loved him and Mike and Emily lovingly referred to him as "Mr Wilson", even still today. He was such a kind man with a wonderful sense of humor. The world lost a treasure but heaven gained one.
