I was so sorry to hear of the loss of our cousin George. I have so many fond memories of my brother Gary and I visiting their home when we were children. I am sorry we lost touch over the years. One thing I would like to mention is that my adult son(also George) loves Corvette's and reading about how George had a passion for them as well. Nice to know some things run in the family tree!
George’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.
George was a friend to my husband, Tom and to me, even after Tom died. He was generous with his time, his knowledge, his help and his joy. We enjoyed many a night of game playing ( like Scrabble and other word games) with George and Verena.
George was modest in all of his achievements and complained little about his long term Crohn's Disease and its complications. He made light of his last battle with cancer and its effect on him...yes, the standard joke that he would say to me was yes, the hormones are having an effect on me.....you all know the rest.
Even though, I have moved from New Jersey, we still kept in touch and I never felt like a 3rd wheel in any of the events that he would invite me to.
I will always remember the Hunt Club's Venison Dinners and the fun we had with all... Dancing to Mony Pony...listening to the war stories for the car competitions. Oh lest I forget trying to find a restaurant that both he and Verena and Tom and I could have a meal that worked for all!!
We had parties at Tom and my place and George was always there! He had BBQ's at his place and we were always there! Tom and George built that dual deck at our home and Tom and George put a new roof on at his place. I can not tell you how many times after Tom died that George would walk me through how to start the generator and keep it going!! or when I had the septic go belly up that he talked with the various "experts" and "contractors" to help me choose what to do and who should do it.
I will remember and love my friend, George always.
Carmen and I so sad about the death of George. I can remember the first time we met at the surprise wedding shower for Lani and Sean. Wedding, births of our grandchildren, baptisms and birthdays were always special to be together. It is so sad to think these times are gone. George you will be missed by many. Patty and Carmen
