George is a good man with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed going through my days as a student at SJC high school and the years after working with George on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons collecting and grading football sheets. He also had a part in my interest to become an EMT. He was one of the gentlest men I ever met. Prayers for peace and comfort to his family and RIP George.

Hey Dad — What can I possibly say now that I haven’t told you in the past few months? I’m so proud to have you as my Dad. I know at times we didn’t see eye to eye but who does? We understood each other & made our forgiveness. You always protected me & instilled values & ethics that I’ll keep & hold onto forever. You taught me to be a strong independent person & to work hard to get what I want. There was nothing better than spending time with you every weekend. I’m so glad you’re at peace now. No more pain. Enjoy your new eternal life with Mom & family & friends where you’re all young & full of life. Give them all a big hug & kiss for me Remember you promised to be my Angel — watch over protect & guide me, Herb & Jim I miss you dearly. Until we meet again — All my Love to you Forever & Always, Lorri
