Dear Arlene....my heart goes out to you and the family. I was so sorry to read of George's passing. We didn't know him well but the one time we were with the two of you we really felt he was a fine individual. I know he was such an addition to your life and made you so happy. May you take solace that the 15 years you were together was a joy for you both. Rest in peace George. Sandy Cole

George was a great neighbor and a dear friend...one of my first when I moved to the neighborhood. He was our neighborhood 'social director'..always introducing newcomers to the pool to one another, and making sure we all felt welcome.
He will be greatly missed by those of us who had the good fortune to know him. Truly a fine human being. Rest in Peace, My Friend.
