  • Dear Julie, Russell and kids, I’m sorry for all of you on this huge loss! I loved your mom and dad (Grandma and Grandpa), so much from the moment we met……. they were so cordial to me and something about your mom; when we met, it was as if we had known one another for many years… your dad seemed to follow suit.
    He was a man of few words, the way I knew him, but every word counted. As I read here, now I know why: a member of MENSA! It must havee been wonderful having George as a dad, a husband and grandfather. Please accept my prayers and good thoughts for yourself, your hubby, your brother and the kids on this tremendous loss from your lives. Much Love, Sharon, Cicero, NY

    I am sorry that you have lost your father and the grandfather of all those children. Growing up in Stamford, he was always my favorite of all my Dad’s cousins. We would see him often. He was always so happy and cheerful. I know you will all miss him.
