What sad news today learning that Georgie passed away. Granted that we didn't see each other much, but his messages and texts always made me smile. He had an amazing sense of humor that I enjoyed. I know you have many warm memories to make you smile too. Hold them close and know that Georgie is resting peacefully now and meeting and greeting family members gone before him. I am so sorry for your loss. Love, Brenda

My condolence to Peggy and the family of my friend George. We worked together for over 20 plus years and played ball on and off over the same period. I will miss our candid chats and the fun times we had together. I will miss my friend.
