    Jane and Family – We are so sorry to hear about George. He meant so much to our family as he helped you in the care of the kids when they were young. Cam especially always held George as a special friend. He was a very lucky man to have such a wonderful family to spend his life with. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    I had breakfast with George at the Cosmopolitan meeting almost every Friday for years. I always enjoyed talking to him and hearing his take on whatever we were talking about.

    He was a great guy and I’ll miss him.
