I will miss my weekly phone calls with my dear Uncle George. We enjoyed sharing stories about my Dad Clifford, his brother, which meant so much to me after my Dad died in 2010. We had a good time remembering all the good times when I was growing up, and
sharing news about our home baseball teams the Tigers and the Mariners. At his 100th birthday party he was so happy we came out from Seattle, and I will always treasure those few days we spent together.
