I lived in the same building as George for 15 years and he always made me smile even when I didn't want to. He was a tough and stubborn man but he had the biggest and sweetest heart ever created. I used to come home and he would be in the window watching traffic or he was asleep watching tv and he would wake up and smile at me and say hello is this heaven your a angel right. We will miss him so much and I'm hoping that he is enjoying the real Angel's now. See you again in the future we love you and miss you alot.
