    My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to all of George’s family, especially Scott, Robbie, jeanne, Cody and his sister-in law Janet. For the last 12 years I have been blessed to have had George and his late wife Barbara as my “across the street” neighbors. They always were so nice to both myself and my daughter, Christina. Always a kind word, a friendly wave, just simply a lovely couple. I know that George had struggled terribly with the loss of his beloved Barbara over the past few years and I feel solice in the fact that they are once more, back together, holding hands and being “so cute together” as my daughter Christina would always say! George, you are finally “home” where you were always the happiest, with your Barbara. I will miss you and those sparkling blue eyes of yours! You were loved by all and will be sorely missed, but I will smile when I think of you because i know that you are finally at peace. Give Barbara a big hug from me and Christina!
