Nancy and family, my deepest sympathies and heartfelt sorrow for your loss. I remember George always having a warm smile and easy conversations, no matter where we "ran into" each other. I know you have faced a challenging year, in so many ways. My prayer is for you to find comfort, peace and rest in your memories and with the love of family and friends. Mary Beth (from Ronzone days)
