George I think of you so often. You and I worked together a lot of times as partners. I think of the p.e.i. school we attended together and we got to be the two who got to sling down a few and then we were tested by the class. They had to carry you and I home and we sang all the way. I remember your wife and your two children and how wonderful they were and how proud you were of them. I miss you buddy and always will. You were a great officer and made us all proud. Rest Brother.
