    George was a great man. I have had many fun times laughing and joking with George. All the way back to the 6th grade. Best concert I went to was with George and Carolyn and Phillip and Robin. You will be missed. Thanks for the memories. Ann Kelliher.

    one of my best friends in life. George was a funny man. I think people may of overlooked the genius in him. I have so many memories of us from young teens up till our last concert together. He had depth like no one I ever met. Just an awesome friend
