  3. We always looked forward to Uncle George, Aunt Chris, Cousins George, Rick and Keith arriving in Englishtown Nova Scotia for their annual vacation. Then the fun would begin, many adventures too many to list. Some summers George would arrive early by bus from Rhode Island and stay with us for the summer. I also kept in touch with him over the years.
    George will be missed and never forgotten.
