George and Dorothy have been such good friends and we are very sad to see George leave us. He was first our Postman in Navy housing and always added a few jokes and laughter to our day when he delivered our mail. We were fortunate after retiring and moving out of housing to continue our relationship with Dorothy and George. We often exchanged good food between us , Sonny’s lumpia and George and Dorothy’s pea soup and so much more. We will miss him. Please take care ,Dorothy and our condolences to all the family. Love you, Sonny & Kay
