George was a good guy who always had time to talk about sports. A lot of Arizona stories too. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace George.

Mike, Donna, Kiki, and all the " little kids". I was stunned to read of George's passing. He was just a little boy who never stopped smiling..in my mind anyway. Take care of each other as you remember George.
