    So long cousin. Although we were some distance apart a lot of your lifetime. Every time we were together I really enjoyed your company. I met you when I was 15 years old. Even at that age I seen in you a person that I wanted to become. You were honest,caring, respectful and at same time funny. That first impression was never challenged. God Bless George
