George was such a sweet man - and what a sense of humor! It was so sad to learn of his passing a few months ago, but I only recently discovered this tribute page (beautifully done!)
My husband and I actually met George at Cafe Pro Bono, only to find out he lived right around the corner from us. Such a small world.
One year when it was exceptionally rainy one night and George was leaving, we mentioned to him that we were neighbors and we'd be more than happy to pick him up and bring him to Cafe Pro Bono with us in the future (after all - we were all going to the same place!) LOL - but George was very much his own man, and never took us up on the offer.
I had heard his last couple of months were rough, but he certainly maintained his health and independence for way longer than so many. I hope I'm a fraction of the 'independent' George was if I make it to 93! What a treasure of a man!
BTW - George was very much 'family' to everyone at Cafe Pro Bono (staff and other customers like us) - and he's remembered to this day... so much so, a tribute to George and Mary is being included in the restaurant's new web site currently being built.
Continued prayers to the family... George will never be forgotten.
