Deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. I will always remember the talks that I had with him about how proud he was of each and everyone of his children and grandchildren. He is reunited with your mother in heaven dancing the polkas with angels. George always had a huge smile on his face. I I will miss him in the neighborhood working his garden. That was my pleasure of the summer. My mother even got pleasure out of seeing him working in the yard. Please. Remember no one can ever take the lovely memories of your lovely parents. Treasures the memories that you have of them always and forever. Michele Mino

Holding all of Grandpa George's dear ones in my heart and in unceasing prayer. I feel so fortunate to have met him and experienced his wry sense of humor if only for a day. You all have a lifetime of wonderful memories and his lasting legacy to guide you through this time of mourning.
