Dear Rodica,

Our sincerest condolences to you and your family. George and I had adjacent offices while working at the Ohio Geological Survey, and also, we worked together on several projects. I have fond memories of our times in the field and George's inspirational stories about his life. I will always remember George as and intelligent, passionate individual, and am sorry to hear of his passing.

Am primit cu tristete dureroasa veste a trecerii la cele vesnice a domnului George Botoman. Doamna Profesoara, va sint alaturi cu gindul. Imi voi aminti intotdeauna de bunatatea sufleteasca, entuziasmul si dragostea de viata a domnului Botoman. Dumnezeu sa-l odihneasca.

Rodica, Alin & Family,

The friendship between our two families over the decades has meant so much. We are lucky to have such good friends through wonderful times filled with laughter, and difficult times when love and support shined brightly.

Please know that all of us are blessed to have known George (he taught me to drive!) and shared in his infectious joy of life. I am especially glad that my own son got to see him on our recent trip to Florida. We will share stories with him of the deep friendship and love shared between our families.

Our condolences to you during these difficult times and our continued love remains forever.

Draga Rodica, Alin si familie –

Am aflat cu mare durere despre George. Figura lui ne este mereu in minte. El a fost tipul ideal al Ardeleanului: drept ca un brad, bun la carte, bun la munca, si bun la suflet - bun cu toti cunoscutii si uneori si necunoscutii - placut la petreceri si neintrecut la dansuri. Ce aminitiri frumoase avem despre zilele acelea ....

Figura lui o sa traiasca in societatea romaneasca cat si Americana. Dumnezeu sa-l odihneasca.

Voua va dorim pace in suflet. Cu asa o amintire speram ca mahnirea sa fie mai usoara.

Va dorim numai bine. Toate gandurile noastre sunt cu voi.

To Alin ,Rodica and all family and friends who loved George. I worked for the Ohio Geological Survey but only knew him in passing because I was based in Sandusky Ohio, but all the contacts that I had with him were just wonderful. I treasure the time with him and have thought of him often. I hope that in this trying time you will feel comfort it knowing that he touched so many folks in such positive ways.

George was such a wonderful, big-hearted man; he always had a kind word and a helping hand for others. I can see him showing OSU students how to do folk dances—in a red vest, and perhaps red in the face with his exertions, but beaming from ear to ear. Dumnezeu sa-l odihneasca, iar familiei sincere condoleante.

My deepest condolences to Rodica and Alin, George's death is a great loss for me. I will always remember learning to dance with two left feet in your basement.

Dear Rodica and Family,
I was so sorry to hear about George. I have so many wonderful memories of you both, and especially doing the Romanian Dancing. As a student of the Romanian Program and trying my hand at the cultural aspects of dancing - George always made the mens dance look so easy. Until I tried it myself. He was an excellent teacher of such footwork, but I seldom could look as graceful as he made things seem. He was such a great person and I enjoyed our visits together when you lived in Columbus. Please know both my mom Betty and I are thinking of you all at this time.

Dear Rodica and Alin,
It is with great sorrow that I write tonight looking at George's picture hanging on my wall. I know it will be replaced with the wonderful memories in the future but my heart goes out to you for the grief and pain you are currently feeling. The love he showed my entire family can never be replaced. Love and smiles - that's my George!! It is truly a great man if he can be remembered by all for what really matters in life - love and kindness.
Please know our thoughts, love and prayers are down in Fort Lauderdale.

Dear Rodica and Alin, I have no words to express for the loss of George in your life and the lives of all those who knew him, during his 87 years. I was always impacted by the depth of George's profound and sincere passion for the lives and welfare of his wife, son and grandchildren. His integrity, honor and character were exceptional, surpassing expectations which made him loved unconditionally. In my mind, George will be greatly missed as the kind gentle giant who was a trailblazer as a geologist and in escaping communism, while being the absolute caretaker with unlimited love shown for his family and to those honored as a friend. My love in sympathy to Rodica, Alin and family, betsy

Dear Alin and Family,
My sincere condolences for the passing of wonderful father, husband and grandfather. I met him on only two occasions, but his kindness and humor were clearly evident.
