Life is so hard to accept when we lose loved ones. We think that person will be here for a long time. As the years roll along, we may even take it for granted. Then, all of a sudden, their time here is ended and we’re left in total shock! It may have been expected, but it still comes as a shock to loved ones left behind. Uncle George was a good man, thoughtful, fair and good to everyone. He served our country, worked in one of NY’s toughest prisons, helped raise four good kids, good husband to Aunt Pearl and later to Rita. He lived a full life and he will be missed greatly by all his loved ones, family and friends. Give my parents a hug from me, Uncle George! Dianne Hayes DeVoe

Although I never had the honor of meeting George Douglas in person, I’d gotten to know him through conversations and memories from his loving step-daughter, GailAnne , through the years. I came to understand that George was a charming, intelligent man, and devoted husband. So sorry the miles kept us from meeting, but there is no doubt that his life left a positive impact in the hearts of family and friends; his death leaves a hole in those hearts. RIP George.

I am so sorry to hear of Porgie’s passing. He certainly was one of a kind and lit up the room when he walked in. I don’t think he ever met a stranger. He was one of the kindest people when I worked with him at Clinton. He had good corn too!!!
