"He coached me and my cousin in Charlotte, NC during semi pro days. Introduced me to Namath and came to find out what a great person and player George was."

"I am a first cousin of George, his Father was an older brother of my Father Bob. I was born a month before George but hardly knew him because he lived in Waco while I grew up in Denver. I did get an opportunity to get to know him a little better when he came to Denver with the Jets when they played the Broncos twice in the seasons after their Super Bowl victory over the Colts. He spent an a very pleasant evening with us for dinner at my parent's home and he got us tickets for the games. At the end of the games, we had the honor of going down on the field and meeting some of the players. Joe Namath was especially gracious - he kissed my Mother on the cheek and posed for snapshots. After that time, we didn't stay in contact and I just now learned of his death. Dana, my love and sympathy goes out to you."

"I am both saddened and relieved to find out about the end of George's suffering....I cared for him during the last 2 years of his life and learned so much from him.....about patience (hut, hut!!!!!) and grace and humor. My prayers and thoughts go out to you.....George is now truly free, when I cared for him I could see his frustration about his diminished capacity. It was in his eyes.....when I settled him in bed I always hugged him and kissed his forehead and I am so glad that I did. His smile lit up a room. I am so blessed to have been a part of his life, he loved to be read to as he ate his bedtime snack....PB and J and chocolate milk. Prayers to your family. .."

"I have been acquainted with George since the early 70's and always thought he was a special person. My heart goes out to all of his loved ones.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time.
