My name is Michael, and I am the first born son of George C. Uhlrich Jr. I had no idea that my father had died, and I am at a loss for words. I remember as a young boy walking with my Dad along the railroad tracks in back of his home. As we walked along he would sing the song, “God didn’t make little green apples” and he would look down at me and smile. I love you Dad! And I will see you one day on the other side.

Sharon, sorry to hear about your Dad and my old boss. He lived a good long life and was around when the world was a better place.  You take care of yourself.   Joey DeMora
