  1. I was fortunate enough to be able to assist with care for Mr. George as a companion during the last few months of his life. I found his occasional sense of humor a treat. Personally, I will miss him but know that he is celebrating with his wife and family gone before him. Fly high with the angels, George!

  2. George was a good neighbor and friend, as was Nancy, whom we were privileged to work with on several boards and committees several years ago. Our sympathy to all the family, Sybil and Bill Becker
