A few weeks after having been introduced to George we ran into each other at a model train show. George had a 2-for-1 coupon for a fast food restaurant, and he invited me to join him for lunch. We sat and talked. Got a second cup of coffee. Talked some more. A friendship was launched. George was never pretentious. We often traded stories and he never tried to out talk me or tell one better. There was a time he told someone who had interrupted me to be quiet so that I could finish my story. There were times when he engaged me in very mild teasing. George had a sense and a way of not offending; not being superior. He had the ability to say something in a way that I would find to be humorous and would easily laugh with him. I am thankful for the time I had with George and the good memories I have.
