This is so sad, and I am going to miss George! He was such a big part of our family's life ever since they moved into the neighborhood when we were children. He was a great friend of my parents and always so full of life, funny and warm-hearted. We have lots of fond memories of spending time with him especially during the famous Thanksgiving party at their house (though I suspect Maureen did all the work)! My condolences to Maureen, Anne, George Jr, Kevin, Nancy, and their families.
