    Dear Elaine: Words cannot express how sorry I am to hear of George’s passing. He was such an honest caring fun loving guy. I will always remember the fun we had at WHA and then becoming friends with both of you, dinners at your house and his “happy place” in NH and his love for Antigua and working in his garden. May all the wonderful memories that you two have shared bring you comfort and know how much George was loved by many.
