Susan & Jamie , Greg, Aiden, Gillian & Caitlin. There aren't enough words for Cindy & I to express how much we'll miss George. We will especially miss our outings in the Chevy , going for lunch , meeting for lunch , planting flowers & just sitting on the deck gabbing. And eating Pies of course. Also talking Cars. George loved talking Cars & Car shows. Our hearts are empty.

To George's family,

I was honored to have had the opportunity to work with George in a non-employment capacity.

He was such a great guy. 'Always a smile on his face and he cared so much for his family. He spoke about them all the time.

He will be missed.
