George the senator (because he looked very diplomatic), was a frequent visitor when I worked at StocksBakery in Philadelphia. His presence would light up the room. He was a person that could never be forgotten. May he Rest In Peace.

I am so sorry for your loss Doris. It was a pleasure meeting you both. Tami, RN

Dear Dempsey Family,
I just heard of 'Mr. Dempsey's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. From the moment I first met Mr. Dempsey I had a very high level of respect for him. He was always very kind to my family and me.
My thoughts and prayers to all of you.

Dear Doris and Family
We're truly saddened to hear about George (10/22). We have fond memories of you and Geoge's parents.
I used to see George at Aunt Charlotte's or Jerry's (VW) where we would chat for a while. He always had a big, engaging smile.The last time we saw him, he was using a cane and said, "Now I'm a Cannanite". What a great sense of humor!

Dear Dempsey family, hearing about George today, brought back a flood of memories that I will always cherish, we both had to go through a tough bout of physical therapy after our surgeries, and it was his strength, perseverance, and friendship that saw me through it all. If he (as I suspect) was as kind and wise with everyone else, as he was with me, than the world is now less for it. Prayers for God's blessings, for you and yours.

Dempsey Family,
We didn't know George but we know his son Dan, and George must have been an incredible father to have had such a wonderful son. Our prayers and thoughts are with your family at this sad time. We are so sorry for your loss.
With love,
The Angus family.
