Nancy and family. What can I say about my fellow compadre? Everything under the sun that’s good and humorous. It was so nice to see George that day at Cardonas market. Seemed like it was meant to be.The world is a mystery sometimes….xx

Condolence from William F. McMahon on August 6th, 2013 9:22 pm

Dear Nancy and family:
I was out of town when George passed away and I read the obit
in the Times Union.
I am very sorry for your loss. I often saw him at the supermarket
and he would always stop to chat with me. He always asked me what kind of car I was driving and always came over to check it out.
He was a great conversationalist and I will miss him on my trips to Hannaford.
May God Bless him and you Nancy.
Bill McMahon
