  1. Martha, Georgina and Chase,

    So sorry to hear about George. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with him for about the last eight years and never met a nicer guy. I’ll have fond memories of all the talks and lots of laughs that we had. He loved you all so much and was especially proud of Chase. I already miss seeing him every day.

    So sorry to hear about George. George had quite a presence about him. Jolly, funny and always willing to offer a helping hand. I recall my bar admission party where George couldn’t wait to offer his assistance to set up for the big event! I recall many conversations and laughs at the Court of Queens Bench. He was a familiar and friendly face. He will be missed.

    All our love,

    Glenda, Steve, Savannah and
    Rhys
