Eileen and family
I was so sorry to hear of George's passing.I haven't seen either of you in a long time but I remember you so well from the Fleet wood neighborhood. You both were also some of my favorite customers at the Grand Union in Fishkill. I still have the beautiful glass plate you gave me for my wedding. Geoge was a very sweet man and I'm sure his family will truly miss him. Keeping you all in my prayers. Lori Sjostrom Kingsley

Dad, I have always been so very fortunate and very proud of you. You were a very loving, hardworking, thoughful and selflessly dedicated father. Those are only a few of your beautiful qualities. Although my heart is so very heavy to know I wont be seeing you and hearing your laughter for a while. I will needlessly to say never forget you and have you in my mind and heart until the end of my time, when God reunites us. I pray you are surrounded with more peace, love and happiness than imaginable. Enjoy the next phase in God's journey and know you are loved and appreciated. I will look forward to being with you again. I love you Dad!

Always & forever,
Your son,
Kerry Adam
