I am sorry to hear of George's death.I happened to see this when I was just looking up my favorite profs from grad school when I was stationed at Mather 30+ years ago. He was such an inspiration to me. I'm retired from psychology now and pursuing art also so maybe he's still an inspiration! Blessings to all who love him.
