    George I love you and miss you so much. Everyday seems like the last. You were so wonderful to me and our children and grandchildren. Emma was the light in this house through these last day, she would go over to the hospital bed and say it’s me pop pop Emma I love you a couple of times a day. Now I still wait for him to come down stairs 3;00 in the morning and say good morning beautiful. I love you and miss you forevermore.

    the list goes on and on because that’s the man Uncle George was! Caring for everyone….such fond memories of being a kid and coming up there for cook outs and well whatever reason, watching phillies with poppop wandering in kitchen and seeing big pot of chili boiling on stove and wandering out back to garage and listening to Uncle George and well names escape me around a classic car just being “men” Even though we don’t see each other anymore…I love all of you so much and the memories I will never lose

    George was so special to me. He always accepted me and always included me in family events when I felt like an outsider.

    For that inclusivement, for that compassion, he’s will
    always going to be my hero.

    Had occasion to ralk with him as he worked on the ballfield behind Yates Ave. He struck me as a man who cared about Marcus Hook and its residents. A really nice man.
