Condolence & Memory Journal

George was a good friend to me and my best friend Bill Russell. Bill's older brother Melvin was class mate of George's (same year @ Wakefield High School. George was six years older than me and Bill. We had a few wonderful times. I remember well George's 64 Impala Super Sport 2 door hardtop. Was very cool for the time. I remember when Goerge went off to Vietnam and very relieved when he returned safey. Bill and I both married in the mid seventies and our lives took us all in different directions. I do remember hearibng of George's marriage. By then we werwe no longer in touch. George obviously made the right choice in a spouse.I never forgot George. Just a really decent guy
