Our Beloved George
A friend just sent me this link and I must share that your words/sentiments about our beloved George, my husband, has moved me to respond.
Yes, he was a great mastering engineer. He also was an incredible husband, father, grandfather and friend to all. He was everything to everyone. Never selfish. No ego. Always made time to teach or chat or... Just the sweetest coolest 'mensch'.
He would have been humbled by the turnout at his wake, Mass and burial and, by your words.
Yes, he had a great sense of humor. He had to, he was with me for 44 years!
George was diagnosed with lung cancer on Halloween, 2011. Eight months later, on June 4, 2012, we lost him. He fought a valiant fight. The cancer was contained...we thought. But some cancerous cells escaped chemo and radiation and went to his liver.
What you saw, felt and met, was the real deal. He didn't have a bad word to say about anyone. Didn't have a bad bone in his body, but insidious cancer came a-calling without mercy.
He would be embarrassed by all the accolades you posted. Truly embarrassed. Many of our friends had no idea who and what George was or did. They learned at the wake and, were stunned to know. That was George...
Again, thank you for your kind words and memories. They are helping me during this very difficult time...without my George. Diane Warren said that now they angels will sound better...
Bless you all and stay healthy.
