George was very special to us. He always treated us not only as family, but as a friend. Anyone lucky enough to have known him certainly had their life enriched greatly by his easy going good nature. Whenever a problem arose that involved our own homes, George unselfishly offered not only his knowledge, but his time to see that we did things correctly and safely. He is truly the last of a special group of people that we were all blessed to have been raised by. God Bless George, we will surely miss you…
