  1. Jeff, I was so sorry to see your Dad’s obituary in the paper today. I have never forgotten the good times I spent with your family and how welcoming George and Mary always were to me.
    I have never forgotten George giving a great summer job to a a college kid at Modern Tool. I worked 2nd shift so I made great money and was to tired during the day to spend it. I graduated from college in the mid 70’s, the economy and the job market was horrible. Even though things were slow at Modern Tool when George learned I was pumping gas I was working at Modern Tool a week later. I swept the parking lot a couple of times, but I was able to go back to school and ended up with a good life because of it.
    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope good memories help you all through the tough times. Please let me know when the remembrance is I would really like to pay respects to your Dad. I am smiling thinking of my good memories of your Dad.

  2. My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends. May you find some comfort in the promise found in Revelation 21: 3-4 and 1 Thessalonians 4:14. Knowing that there is an opportunity to be reunited with loved ones.
