George was always smiling! He lived a full life with a family that loved him very much. He was generous and kind and very good to my mother. I will miss him answering the phone and chatting about the weather when I call my mom. George will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

I remember the day your Dad walked me down the isle. I was a wreck and he kept me calm. Chuck and I have such fond memories of your Dad and always of your Mother. Your Mom and Dad were second parents to me and I will never forget them. You are all in my prayers.
