Condolences to the Family

To George’s family,
I am so sorry for your loss.  I remember seeing George (and your mom) on the balcony of your house from my back yard.  He was always nice to us.  Mary Rose, I believe you are the same age as my younger sister, Dee Dee.  Good times in the old neighborhood.
I will pray for your father.  May he rest in peace.
Fran Lombardo Spangler
