Friday,Feb.24- Just read the Altamont Enterprize and found George's picture in the obituaries. Sure is a surprise, George and I hung out together when we were teenagers in Clarksville at his parents house. Our lives eventually took different directions, but we kept in touch as our paths crossed. I always respected him and considered him and his brother Fred some of my best friends. I sure will miss him. Irv Mosher
