    So sorry to hear this. George was a wonderful friend to my mother and our family. I had lost touch in the last couple of years and was thinking of him very recently and wish now I had reached out with a call. I loving called him "ornery" because he could be a bit stubborn and contrary, but he would do anything for people that were his friends. Our phone calls were usually like a verbal "sparring" match as he loved to trade friendly barbs usually about nothing important. He missed my mother, who was a really great friend to him, and told me so each time we spoke. Rest in peace my "ornery" friend.
    Angela - I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you had a chance to get closer to your dad in the past few years. Family is family and he always loved you dearly and wanted the best for you. Keep the good memories close to you.

    For many years, while I worked at The Colony Apartments in Charlotte, George was one of my most cherished residents, up until the time I retired. He was not only a favorite person of mine, but also a devoted friend.
    He brought all of us, who worked in the office, gifts, lunches filled with Greek specialty dishes and our much anticipated Greek Festival tickets. We always looked forward to his visits, because we knew that” laughter was right around the corner”!
    He teased me, mercilessly, but underneath that “rough exterior” was a kind and loving soul.
    George, I’ll hold you in my heart forever.....
