George was a dear friend to many, including my mom. I last saw him at a birthday party I threw for my sister. He surprised me with a thank you card for the event, which I never expected and it warmed my heart. What a kind and thoughtful man. I am grateful for the loyal friendship he gave to my mom, and I am saddened by his passing. God bless you, George Bush. And thank you.

George was loved by all. His sense of humor will be missed. We shared the same sweet tooth for carmel creams, chocolate neco wagers, chocolate swiss rolls and mallowmars. Hope he has a nice limberger cheese and onion on rye waiting for him. We loved him and wil remember him always. God Bless
