Mr. George you will be sorely missed on our little street. You were character with many stories to share, wisdom and terrible jokes. Jonathan will now have to find a new way to get his cupcake stash. It was a pleasure to be your neighbor and an honor to be your friend. Thank you for always making me and my children feel safer. Rest easy my friend, give Ms. Shirley a hug from us!!
