    Dear Alaine and family– my late dad, Bill, spoke often of George and enjoyed the dancing and social activities with a fellow Ukie. You and George were so kind to my mother, Helen, and regularly included her in social activities after she was widowed–my heartfelt gratitude. She is away right now, but I know she will be deeply saddened by your loss. Although I didn’t really know George, I want to say I’m also saddened by the passing of someone who was an important part of my parents’ life. I wish you all peace and consolation. Anne

    Alaine, we were sorry to learn of George’s passing. We will always remember his contagious smile – he was always happy & nice to be around. He had such a mischievious personality & always joking or teasing. He was always fun in a “square”. He touched everyone who knew him & will be missed.
    God bless, you are in our prayers.
    Hugs,
    Les & Claire

    Alaine & Family
    We were saddened to learn of George’s passing and we extend our sincere sympathy to you and your family.
    We have many fond memories of George (and you), obviously most of them associated with square dancing. However one memory not related to dancing is meeting you in Market Mall (early morning walkers) on a very cold morning, at least -25oC, and George joining us later, smiling and rosy cheeked from his early morning walk to Market Mall!
    Sincerely
    Art & Collette McMullen
