Not sure what to say?

I knew George since grammar school. He went to Lincoln school & I
went to Washington. In a way we were enemies kind of like sports
teams. The next year we all ended up at Junior High so we all became friends from then on. When we all got out of Hi school &
went in different directions I would run into him & Bev here & there
& we would chat. Those of us that are left are older than the hills now. George was a good guy. I hope to run into him in heaven.

all became friends. He was always a good guy & I would always run into him & Bev someplace & we'd chat. Our class is dwindling down
due to age. I know my days are numbered. Hope to see you in heaven George.

So many many memories...mixing cement for the additions to the house in Ventura, riding in (or on) that old flatbed up to Ojai to move rocks and YES, that old VW bug!!!

My thoughts are with Bev, Jason, Rex and Dale, may you find comfort in all the great memories of a life well lived


Such great memories. I always looked forward to those weekends, in Ojai moving rocks and getting dirty. I will miss your dad and his kind heart. Danny
