We had many great times together that I will always remember and cherish. I loved George for his young spirit, shared wisdom and great stories. I learned something new about him every time we talked. He accomplished more in his lifetime than many men could dream. I will miss my best friend dearly. He will live on in my heart, always.

I will truly miss the man who called me his daughter. I am unable to attent, but I will be in prayer for all of George's loved ones.

I am unable to come in person but am sending condolences to family members and his close friends. I will always remember George and his many stories, visits with him in S. Orleans in the summer, his sightseeing trips with us around the Cape, and other treasured memories. May he rest in peace in Heaven until we meet again.

I remember when George was youth adviser at Church of Our Saviour in Roslindale. Many a winter, the group of us used to meet at his house in Dedham and go ice skating on the Charles River on a Sunday afternoon followed by delicious hot chocolate and cookies made by Pat. Also remember going to his summer place in Manomet when he was building it. He had the group of us go down. Time has certainly flown by. My sympathies to George's family.
