    So many wonderful times we have spent together, we were family. George being the life of the party.
    Just bring the eggplant out, and that was one of the highlights.There were a lot of ups and downs
    but George kept going, and would bring it up once again.He was not only well known, and respected
    he was a gentleman, always ready to help when he could.
    He now is out of pain and misery, he is in GOD’S hands.
    My prayers are with You, George’s Sons, & Family
