My Uncle George was the best ever!! He will always have a special place in my life and heart!! I will never forget him forbidding Aunt Lee and I from anymore projects after I cut a hole in the wall (on Aunt Lees orders) but he really loved it deep down!! I will miss him and the great Uncle I had in him and I will always remember how he loved and took care of Aunt Lee!!
