So Long George.....

Yesterday we attended the memorial service for our landlord and friend, George Goodwin. He lost his short battle with cancer, but was lucky enough to be surrounded by his loving family. Although sad, it was nice to learn more about him through the eyes of his good friends and family. From his oldest daughter to his youngest brother (who is 80 years old), it was great to hear stories of growing up in San Francisco, how he started in the real estate business, his love for golf, his competitive spirit, and the importance of family. We saw some amazing pictures of when Marge and George were married, of his first car, a Model T Ford, his time spent in the Navy, great fishing adventures, and many memories of him always surrounded by friends and family. We will miss him. (4/21/07)
