  1. George – You will always be remembered for the good you did. You inspired my son – you taught him the value of work and the joy of reward (at the Blue Check). Rest in peace and know you were loved.

  2. George, Eleven years has gone by so fast. I will always remember our coffees at the Firehouse/Blue Check/AMR Station. Whether talking about our trains, the goings on in town, or our family and friends (especially our mutual buddy B.R.) You will be greatly missed and I have been blessed by the void you filled for me. So when you find the coffee and donut you will know I stopped by to say hi and chat. All my love.
