Jim please accept and extend my sincere sympathy to your family on your recent loss. George was a wonderful person and we always looked forward to his Easter and Christmas visits. I especially remember the night before Margo's wedding George and my Dad were singing all of the old Greek songs while sitting on the porch and sipping their Scotches.
Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the calling hours or the funeral. May his memory be eternal.
