    Very sad to hear of George passing. George and I were close friends in grade school at Sacred Heart. George was a my best friend and we shared great memories. My he Rest In Peace.

    George and MaryKay had the highest of highs and lowest of lows in their marriage. So much grief, but more importantly, so much love and laughter. George, you handled your physical pain without complaint and so much strength, and now your pain is over. Thanks be to God. Rest In Peace and remember “I love you too.”
