    Dear Kathy and Brad, Our heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your Father. We missed the news of George’s death because my brother passed away June 10, 2011 and my Mom broke her hip and we were driving all last year back and forth to Sylvan. Del used to run into George once in a while at the bar or at the track or in the Co-op. He misses seeing him and we are shocked to find out he is no longer with us.
