George was a nice person. I remember babysitting for him and Betty years ago when Debbie and Mike were just young children. May he rest in peace.

Audrey, I was very saddened to learn of Sonny’s death. He was a good man, and I have found memories of visiting with him, and Jimmy at the salvage yard. God bless your family.

I remember bringing aluminium cans over and my nephews came along – you spoiled them with a sucker every time. Loved the way you and my mom joked at family reunions. We will miss you as will your family. God bless all you leave behind.
