  1. Kay: We have so many warm memories of George — not being able to pass a Dairy Queen without stopping, fixing the bathroom while we were visiting LA, trips to El Pollo Loco and Denny’s. He was a kind, quiet and gentle man who will be remembered for years to come. Long distance hugs to you from all of us.

  2. Dear Kay and family, sorry to hear of your loss. Malinda and I often talk of the time we spent with you and George while we were living in California.
