YOO! We miss you George.

To Elaine and Family
George was our property manager for our condo in Wildwood. He became so much more than that- he became a good friend who we looked forward to seeing whenever we were โ€œdownโ€ as he would say. He had such an impact on those around him. George definitely knew how to live and enjoy life. He was one of the finest and nicest people we have ever met. He will be missed so much. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you. Georgeโ€™s memory will be with us always.
Dianne and Steve Magee

Dear Elaine, I'm sure you know how lucky you are to have George in your life. As your brother-in-law I have seen thru the past 50 years how much he loved you. George was a great husband, father and grand-father to you and your family. He was a friend to anyone who knew him and gave a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Gloria and I will miss him at the Maplewood the next time we go and he will not be with us to get his veal parm with extra sauce with a sde of sausage (LOL).I will miss him not only as a brother-in-law but as a brother at heart. He was the best. Love Larry

George, I can't even believe this is real. You will be remembered for a very long time and talked about often. I will remember our friendship forever. To Elaine and the rest of the family, I am truly sorry for such a huge loss. May it help to know how many lives this one man touched. The loss of George will be a huge void in this earthly life. So very sad.

Fondly, Theresa
Wildwood Neighbor on 20th

What can I say about someone I have known for 60 years. Always a good and true friend. Always willing to lend a hand. We did not always agree but we never argued.
I guess you can judge someone by the hole they leave in your life when they are gone. George will leave a that will be hard to fill. I guess we can fill it with memories of him.
R.I.P. my friend. See you on the other side. Joe Z
