One Condolence for George Halley

  • George was a true gentleman and a great neighbor. We always enjoyed talking with George. One day I was walking my senior dog when her back legs gave out in front of his house. She was too big for me to carry home so George got his wheelbarrow and together we got her into the barrow and I was able to get her home. He also took care of one of our cats who decided to visit George every day. We would kid him that he gave the cat better food then the cat got at home. We missed him when he and Alice moved away and for a while we talked by phone but then we lost touch. I thought of him often over the years. Andrea Kauffman
