I am so thankful to have known George. My favorite times were visiting him and my grandmother and hearing the stories from when he was a young man. He was always very generous and welcoming to us and our children. He had a great sense of humor and was always ready to chuckle about this or that or reply with 'Like old people' when I asked how he was doing. My only regret is that we did not have more time in this phase of our life to spend getting to know him more. I'll truly miss you, George.
