    I have many fond memories of Uncle George and the times I spent at the house,either at the farm or in Melville. Merv and I were homoured to have him give the toast to the bride at our wedding.
    Cherish the good memories you have of him.

    Molly, Brian, Warren & Judy. My condolences on my cousin George’s passing. I’ll always remember how he and my Dad would often have a good laugh at some comment one or the other made in German. I’d usually laugh along, even tho I had almost no idea what the heck they said. Love to you all.
