George was one of my very close friends. He taught me to play horse shoes, he brought me sunflowers to grow, my fondest times with George was at Shoes... If I close my eyes I can still here him yelling..." Lucy!!!! DO SOMETHING!... Or the time we won the horse shoe belt and I thought we were still playing.... DUH 💜 I will miss you my Friend
