Condolences to the family in the passing of both George and Julie Mosher. I was a past employee (1978-1989), and had the pleasure to work for the both of them during the early years at National Business Furniture Co., Inc. I learnt and developed my work/business efforts there. Both George and Julie Mosher were very remarkable, kind and generous person. Specifically, as a past employee at National Business Furniture, I received a tuition/reimbursement benefit program which allowed me to earned a bachelor of business degree at U.W.M-Milwaukee. His generousity and kindness will never be forgotten. As the years passed, I then returned his kindness by donating to St. Roman's elementary school children's education. Hence, his generousity has helped not only me, but many others. He will be greatly missed. In his honor, I have arranged to have masses said at St. John the Evangelist cathedral. May God heal all the hurt and perserve all the loving memories to his family during this difficult time.

I did not know Mr. Mosher, but yesterday I had the good fortune to met with people who did. They spoke so highly of him, I feel compelled to offer my condolences. A wise and generous person, they said. God Bless.

I KNEW GEORGE & JULIE FOR OVER 20 YEARS. THEY WERE BRILLIANT, CHARMING AND MOST CARING. THEIR LOSS, SO NEAR EACH OTHER ADDS TO THE SHOCK AND SADNESS. I SWEAR GEORGE'S IQ APPROACHED THE STRATOSPHERE. FONDLY, MARV AND DAVID CONNEY.

Condolences to the Mosher family. George was an amazing, kind and giving man. His relationship with his wife was and is a model of what a marriage partnership should be. George's pouring into the community is a model that we all should follow. Rest in peace George... and thanks for being you.

George was one of a kind. I never saw him "down". When we asked him to co-found BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation with us he needed 30 minutes to make a "yes" decision. His children should be so proud. I always marveled at the functions we went to together at the way he and Julie would be holding hands at the table as the program went on. I look forward to getting back to Wisconsin to my office to look through the Life of George autographed book that sits on the credenza.

I offer my most sincere and heartfelt sympathy at this very difficult time. The world has lost a truly wonderful and caring person, just the very best in every way.

My late Mother, Bernice, was lucky enough to work for George and Julie at NBF for many years. They both demonstrated THE gold standard of respect and appreciation for their employees. Their kindness will never be forgotten.

My prayers for George and his entire family.
