Sheila, Christine, Janet, and Stephen, we are so sorry for your loss.
George was a great husband, father and brother in law.
He was also a mentor to me as I grew up and into my adult life, always a source of help and good advice.
George was more a brother than brother in law, sadly missed but forever in our hearts.
Love you all,
Robert, Rosalie Perch and Family
