Dear George,

I miss your calls and all of your humorous stories regarding your life experiences. There was never a dull moment when we got together with all of our mutual friends, especially when you know who would call out to you, HA HA HA , GEORGE, YDRB! I still find myself picking up the phone to call you and reminisce about our times growing up together and I especially remember the summer of '68 on your return from Viet Nam. That was the true essence of life during those tumultuous times growing up in Hazleton. Miss you. FSK
