My George!!! He was so wonderful to me. I am an Academy of the Sacred Heart graduate. He was my bus driver. There is a picture of George and I walking holding hands that I cherish. All of the girls at Sacred Heart could tell so many stories about George. He was so wonderful and treated all us like we were his own daughters. George was very close to my entire family. He absolutely knew he was loved and considered part of our family. My heart is broken. He certainly earned his wings.
