    My Uncle George was a great man. I revered him as a veteran and fireman and the love he had for his family. I will greatly miss his boisterous laugh, he laughed a lot. He was always good to me. He would joke that his daughter was Denise, and I was “Da Nephew”. I am a better person for knowing him. Someday we will meet again, and have a beer together, at the eternal happy hour on the other side.
