This is the man who taught me what a "father" was supposed to be. I love you and thank you for doing the one thing NONE of the others did...that was sticking with us...to the end. You will FOREVER hold a special place in my heart. I miss you dad.

I'm sorry to hear of George's passing. I met him at Howard Lambs shop and was a really nice guy and I loved to talk with him. He was heck of a nice guy. R.I.P.
