I remember George as a good Christian and co-worker with a good sense of humor at an endless number of 'coffee breaks'. We know that we don't polka in heaven; but if we could.......

I remember George's humor from sharing an endless number of "coffee breaks". I miss him as a friend and a good Christian. I know that we don't polka in heaven; but if we could.....
