  1. So sorry Michelle for you and your family.

  2. Sharon and family, so sorry for your loss.

  3. I worked around George one summer at Vinings. Never a dull moment. Funny guy. Even later on, I'd see him in a loader doing snow removal, and he'd always wave. Good guy...

  4. Sharon, Blessings and prayers to you and the kids.
