I am sorry I did not see the paper today until it was too late to attend the service. We knew George was sick but did not know the status, and we are so sorry for your loss. I’ll miss having him cross the street to say hi or sell me oranges! He was a lot of fun and such a loving person. It was a pleasure to have him as a neighbor.
