  1. Thank you Mary for that beautiful tribute. I pray somehow I will be able to see the kids again, and if so, and I promise to let you know how they are doing. With gratitude,


  2. My husband, Jim and I are broken hearted about George. Also, so shocked to hear this sad news.

    George was such a wonderful Dad. George, Fiona, Wolfy and Ziggy came in often to the library where I work. I have watched them all grow as a family… a very dear family. I am especially saddened that these beautiful kids will not have their Dad anymore. But, dear George, I know you will be with them in spirit. I know you’ll find a way to let them feel your kind presence. You were a devoted and loving Dad. That will take them far.

    I am thankful I knew you, George. You were a good soul….taken from us far too soon.

    Please someone let me know how Fiona, Wolfy and Ziggy are….please stay in touch somehow.

    With loving memories……”Miss Mary” and Jim (who knew George at the Port Hotel)
