I always enjoyed the stories George would tell me about his time as a police officer and our times of listening to music together, especially Pavarotti who he loved so much. He will always hold a place in my heart as my special pal and will be deeply missed. Sending love and condolences to the whole McCarthy family at this time.

To all the McCarthy family, I have so many great memories of your dad and mom and my parents. Your dad is so happy to be back with your mom. Probably already making plans with his hunting buddies. Keep all those warm memories close to your heart. ❤
