We have lost a gentleman ...

... and a dear friend. George & I collaborated closely when I was at the City of Ottawa running organic waste pilots & we were testing Bag to Earth products. We spent quality time looking in green bins & talking about municipal waste management. We maintained that relationship even after I left the City if 2003 - I always looked forward to our lunches together whenever he was in Ottawa. He was probably one of the kindest people I knew. A true gentle man. I will miss him. Rob
Goodbye Uncle George

I think you and I were more alike than we though. Don't talk about it, fix it if you can, swallow your snot and pretend you aren't crying and call yourself Irish. Problem was our WWII Family and being related and alive, I guess. We know how to make money there. We will all miss George, at least those with common sense. Otherwise, I Girl Guide swear to watch after yours and keep Nora safe near or a far. Those opposed can read between the lines. ]{athleen
