George had many things that he cherished and among them was his love of music and dancing. I’m going to miss the way we used to dance together, I would stand on his feet and we would have a ball, the smile on his face just lit up the room and I was in heaven. I will always cherish those moments with him and he will always be in my heart and soul, “So sleep my father sleep.”
