Dear Marlene, Anthony, Kathy, and Mark,

Janet and I were deeply saddened to learn of your loss. Not only did George live a great life, but he and you all touched our lives very profoundly. We were lucky to have lived next door to such a fantastic family. George made the world a better place, and will be missed.
