My heart goes out to George's family. I will always remember George from Nursing School. The fun, laughter and tears we all shared and the fun drives back and forth to school in Richmond and Northern Virginia with Sylvia. The first of our little class of Gracie's girls. She is at peace and awaiting us to join her one day. Ginny Rypka Gartrell
