We were very sorry to hear of George's passing, he was as very nice man,
when I was young in the hospital, he would bring me apples. May he be with
God now.

George was always a kind man with a good laugh. I remember when we were
kids, he never treated us like little kids. He treated us and spoke to us like
adults; that meant a lot then and now. He'll always be remembered.

Dear Trump family. where do I begin ? Our family's relationship spans 2
generations! So much good history, so much respect.
George was like a 2nd father to me, and my parents loved him dearly.
George gave me a nugget of advise that I still use to this day. Another piece
of what makes Stone Lake a special place has now slipped away, and my
heart is sad. God be with you George, say hi to my dad and mom in heaven
when you 3 meet up.
