So sorry to hear about George, he was a very nice man, when I worked for Ken Myles, he used to bring Ken tomatoes from his garden and always brought me flowers, which used to make my day!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jordan Family. George and Arlene and family have been friends for ever. When ever I saw him we always caught up on all of the gossip. They were wonderful people.
