Dear Mike and Sherri,
Ralph and I were so sorry to read about your father's passing. He was a wonderful man. Ralph had the pleasure of working with him on the Knights of Our Lady and the RCIA programs. May he rest in peace and may our Lord comfort you during this sad time of separation.
God bless you,

We knew your dad years ago -- we met through our mutual interest in poker! Although we hadn't seen him in a long time our memories of him have never faltered and we remember him as one of the loveliest of men, sweet, kind and caring. We extend our deepest sympathy to all his family. We know he will be much missed.

I do not have the words that woud accurately convey how much George will be missed. Throughout the 20 yrs I have known you Sherri, your Dad was always a warm, kind, gentle soul with a great sense of humor - which was required being a Dolphin fan!! He was a man of honor and great integrity which has been passed on to his children, Sherri and Mike - and with that his legacy will live on! My prayers are with all of you.
