    Blais Family, My heart and thoughts are with you all. Gab will be so greatly missed. He is so loved. If I should go tomorrow It would never be goodbye, For I have left my heart with you, So don’t you ever cry. The love that’s deep within me, Shall reach you from the stars, You’ll feel it from the heavens, And it will heal the scars

    There isn’t anything I can say to relieve your pain. I wish there was. I just want you to know my heart hurts for all of you and I’m so very sorry this has happened. He was a big, gentle soul and this is so terribly heartbreaking. I hope you have moments of reprieve from the grief of this monumental loss to all of you. My heart soars into the universe in support of yours.

    Nancy, George & family, my heart is broken over the tragic loss of George. He was one in a million, the “BEST KEPT SECRET AT ATHENA”. He was such a warm, sweet guy. I have great memories of my son, Greg, George & the boys singing at my house. So much fun!! I hope George is with my Greg SR singing Sinatra. You are now at peace, Georgie and forever in my heart.

    I just wanted to take the time to send a shout out to the friends and family of this awesome dude. I only knew George for a few weeks. He was the first person who spoke to me at the Canandiagua Driving School when we started back in March 21st. We all loved George and were hit hard by his sudden passing. He bonded with many of the students in a very short time to the point that we felt like we knew him our whole lives. It was very high stress and some of the instructors would really yell at us from time to time… not to be mean or abusive, just because as in the military, our job is VERY dangerous and lots of lives will be in our hands. They have a BIG responsibility to whip us greenhorns into truckers. George LOVED being yelled at. lol. Reminded him of his Navy days. He picked up offset backing and parallel parking quickly. When I asked him how he was doing at the drills he said, "Aw hell I can teach this. In fact I’m going to." At that point he began coaching people military style. Students aren’t allowed to do that and he got a scolding from the head instructor. He walked back to me with his head hung low and a smile on his face like a scolded dog. When I asked if she yelled at him he just smiled and shook his head and said, "Yeah, she hates me." That wasn’t true. She actually liked and respected the fact that he had a positive attitude, sense of humor and didn’t get butt hurt from her often harsh corrections. I told him, "No actually I think she likes you and appreciates your antics." To which he replied, "Yeah that’s me. I’m all about antics. Life is short and you might as well enjoy it and I’m not letting anyone steel my joy of life. That’s the last thing we ever heard him say. He then got into a day cab and went about his drills. At this point one of the ladies said, "You know, he just looks so natural in that thing. That guy was meant to be a trucker." It’s the last time I ever saw him. We’re gonna miss you George. When I earn my license this Friday I’m gonna be thinking of you buddy. I hope we meet again someday in that highway in the sky.

    Hello Dave – thank you for the thoughtful insights about your pal. We are friends of his mom and dad, and did not know George personally…sure do wish we had. After reading your remarks, you helped us feel as if we do know a bit about him. We both worked with his dad, and your quotes sound just like big George talking. Thank you for giving us a look into the heart of this rascal. Congratulations on your license, that surely made your buddy smile. Warmest regards, Gary and Patti Voleshen.
