  • Polly, I was so sorry to hear of George’s passing. But he certainly lived a full life! I really enjoyed our monthly “smoke” at Claims Meeting as we discussed the problems of the world and the claims “industry.” We will miss him!

    George was one of the best “greeters” at Brookwood as we always looked forward to having him come by and see us on Sunday mornings. We will miss his great personality and kind words. Our prayers are with you and your family.
