It will be tremendously difficult to be so far away for the funeral. However, I will always, always cherish the time I got to spend with my favorite Uncle! I looked so forward to his frequent visits to my office while working in Sudbury and am forever greatful that we had time together while I was visiting from México recently.
From the youngest age I remember looking so forward to seeing Uncle George at family events. I always HAD to see him ! He had a way of making me feel special and it is something I'll always cherish!!!
I used to tease him that I was born to the wrong brother because I related so well to him!He could do no wrong in my book
I only hope I can mean as much to my own nieces and nephews as he meant to me and that they, too, can feel that they are as special to me as he always made me feel!
There will always be a very special place in my heart for my favorite Uncle!

My deepest condolences to all of you. George was a great guy who always went out of his way to make my family feel welcome. I know that my brother Peter loved having him as a father in law. May he Rest In Peace!
