We are so sorry to hear about George. There is a special place in Heaven for you. You helped everyone and especially Donald and I when we started our business. You and Donald had the best of times together with or without Louise and I. There wasn’t a sale that you could pass up because you knew someone who needed that special something. Such a thoughtful, loving and giving person!!! You are missed already.
