    Pete and I send our deepest condolences to the Dawes family. Although it’s been a while since we’ve been to Winni, we have such found memories of spending time with George and you all up there. Peace and warm thoughts be with you at this difficult time.

    So sorry to hear of George’s passing. He was a very special person and i’ll always remember his place on the Winni porch, his nod and smile and his skits at Hoot with Don. Much love to you all at this time, he will be deeply missed.
