Farewell to my uncle and Godfather who took me to my first Yankee game, danced with me at our wedding and was part of our family for everything before, in-between and after. You will always have a special place in my heart, Uncle George and you will be sorely missed.

George was not just a brother-in-law to me. He was my friend ,my anchor in the throes of life. To say he will be missed is an understatement.
Rest in peace, dear George.
