    I knew George when I was Receptionist at U.S. Engineering. He would come & sit in the lobby from time to time, & share his cynicism & humor. He would be pleased that I’v willed my property to the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.

      Thank you Phyllis – The Shriner’s Hospitals do so much for children. My dad was proud to be a Shriner. He loved being a volunteer to help drive the van of kids to the Saint Louis Hospital.
      He also loved being an engineer and I remember him working at US Engineering.
