George was always good to my family. When I became a single mother of 6 children, he would phone me every once in awhile to make sure we were doing okay, especially after bad weather. Now George is with his mother and brother, Bob. God bless you!

Words can't express how much I miss you! You are an amazing man.....Anytime I needed you, you were there, no matter what time of day or night. You always took care of me and my mother as well. For that I am forever grateful that our lives were blessed with your presence. It was impossible to meet someone who had a bad word to say about you..... you were loved by many as well as you are now missed by

You sent me to a great school, which I was so grateful for, I insisted on sending our kids to a similar school. You took me boating, skiing, skating, to drive-ins, and on vacations. You got me motorcycles, cars, and other toys. You did good.

Dad You taught me a lot in my life. You taught me how to drive. You

Dad, As your youngest son, I always grew up thinking you would be here forever. In all my life I never would have thought I would have to write this letter to you. You started with me in the beginning, teaching me how to walk, talk and have fun. I have learned many things throughout my life all of which I would have never had the chance to experience if it weren't for you and your loving hands and vibrant

George is going to be sadly missed. We have so many fun memories living near George and his family. We have not seen George for a long time, but we still reminisced about all the good times we spent together. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of George's family.
