    Dear Kay & Margaret,

    We were saddened to read of George’s death.
    You folks were good neighbours.
    Time moves on so fast.
    Please accept our deep simpathy.

    Sincerely,

    Ross & Elsie

    I worked with George in the Massey Ferguson Parts Deparment. My very first job out of high school, George was a great person to work for. I still remember the wonderful lunches Kay made for him and actually peeling his oranges which we would tease him about & sometimes we would go out for fish & chips. Wonderful memories & great times. I have never worked with or had as much fun as I did in the Parts Department. After George retired I would let him know when I was on vacation and he & Kay would take me with them out to lunch.. He was a wonderful man and I will never forget him.George would say at the end of the work day lets get going while we got our breakfast in us, I still say this and it drives everybody crazy in my house. I will miss him.
