    I(Ray) worked with George. Really neat guy. We played tennis a few times. He let my wife and two kids and me stay at the cabin in Colorado one time. It was a lifetime experience that none of us will ever forget. RIP George. We will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love and Peace,
    Peg and Ray Miller
