Not sure what to say?

I remember Mr. Ohanian as being a very helpful guy—-especially during one 7th -grade Science project. But you know he was a wonderful guy because he left such a great legacy behind in his wonderful daughter and grandkids. His generosity of spirit lives on and the world is better for it.

I believe George was the first editor I ever worked with, and certainly one of the most fun. He was a teacher and friend, and taught me the skill of rewinding a take on the end of a moviola without cutting my hand to pieces - something that won me cred with other editors until the business went digital. More importantly, George taught me how to find the rhythm of a scene, how to place underscore against it, and how to get the very best of an actor's performance; he was a master of his craft,...

I'll always remember George for his gentlemanly ways.
When I finished my work at Universal, George invited me to the studio commissary for lunch. After lunch we went to his editing room and finally to a theater where one of his shows was being viewed.
