  1. Sue and Bob

    I was very sorry to hear of George’s passing. He was a very sweet and kind man, and you were both so devoted to him during his time at Crimson. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

  2. So many fun and fond memories through decades of our friendship. It all began when we were neighbors on Laura Drive and continued right on with Life changes along the way. It’s nice picturing my Paul together with George and Carole again.
