Dear Robert and Gail,
Your brother George must have been at Southeastern Massachusetts University when my brother Kevin was there in 1972. Kevin was so successful at that college he got A's in his subjects. Kevin was also in football and track in High School. My brother would go to the Museum of Fine Arts Museum regularly. They must have known each other.
George served our country in so many ways. By delivering food from Papa Gino's, he feed people who would have lacked the chance to stay healthy otherwide. By serving in the National Guard, he came to the rescue when out country. locally, needed assitance that no one else could do.
It is with great pride that he will be given military honors at Furnace Village Cemetery.
Sincerely,
