He also had a passion for dogs, especially poodles.

Dorothy, I am so sad to learn that George is no longer with you. I hope that you are doing ok. I hope that you will remember me. We lived at Bayshore Apartments at the same time. I always enjoyed George's sense of humor and was so easy to talk with. God bless you and keep you in His care.

Sincerely,

Bonnie Daniels
