    I have known George for many years. We lived close to each other in our early married life ,on Givens street, when our children were small. Was a nice man, and had a way to make you laugh, and always had a smile. May God make smooth the path before you in the days and years ahead. To all the family may God Bless each of you.

    So sorry to see that George has passed away! He and Ann were first
