Of all our Dad’s friends, George was our favorite.
Whenever he came to visit, he always visited with us girls,
played with us, and was a good sport putting up with our antics. We have many fond memories of visits, parties, and ski trips with the Klopping family. Sending our love to Ruth, Michael, Ralph and their family’s.
