    Bob and Denise Thacker says:
    George was a neighbor and good friend for many years. We saw each other daily and as our dogs played together we spoke of weather, politics, and laughed about it all. When George was asked how are you doing today he almost said quote “Another day in paradise “. His company, his smile, his optimism will be sorely missed. Safe travel into the great unknown.
