Dear Joan, Mary Beth , Lisa and family, please accept our condolences and our prayers. Dicky and Dotty Cabral
Very sorry to hear of George's passing. I will miss his kindness, sincerity, and sense of humor.
I didn't know George personally but I was friends with his mom and dad. They were devoted parents to their children and grandchildren. You can tell that young George was a giving person who tried to make others lives better through his kindness.
