    Joseph,Margaret and Family,
    It is with a heavy heart that I convey our sincerest condolences on the passing of your Dad and Husband. We are Kilburn Street neighbors, and I looked for George whenever I made the turn down my street. He always had a smile, a wave, and an invitation to come up and visit him. He was a wonderful man and will be missed. May God Bless you all and give you strength through this difficult time.
