I married Hazel's oldest son Jim. Although I never knew Uncle George I did know his widow Aunt Betty and children George and Peggy. There were so many family stories of the goodness of this " gentleman policeman" One oft told, how he would go on his motorcycle to the orphan' s home and take the children for rides. They loved him and waited for him to come.
