I will miss George very much. He was always pleasant to be around and had a good sense of humor. I also admired his "handyman" skills.

George will surely be missed. And I will miss him at the golf course this summer. We had many interesting conversations at the golf course. Please accept my sincere sympathy. He was a very nice person and a good friend.
