    Sorry to hear about the loss of George. He was very kind to us when we were young and treated us like his own. We have all moved on as well as George did meeting the love of his life, Gladys. Although we haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Gladys ,we know you must be someone special. We talk of George often and we hold memories in our hearts forever.
