I am sorry for the loss of your husband, George. We were friends with the Rocque family throughout my childhood. We never had a dull moment when we were together. May George rest in peace and may God's comfort sustain you during your time of grief.

Our deepest sympathies go out to George’s wife, daughters and their families, and including siblings and their families. Rest in peace pain free forever.

George was in the class after mine and he would tease that I was older than him until... he had me witness his signature on a document for the store that had his birthdate listed next to his name. I commented that he had the wrong year written down and he finally had to admit he was 6 months older than me! I didn't let him forget that deception for years. LOL I always enjoyed running into him and Joan. He will be greatly missed by many.
