  • My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I was so shocked to hear of George's passing. I met George through my brother Chris who was a very close friend of Jiri! I have many fond memories of George at social gatherings years ago. He was the life of the party! We also had a tendency to run into each other at Family Foods! I am so sorry for your loss. He was a great person! - Posted by: Angela Mancini (friend) on: Jan 21, 2023
