  4. We stopped to say hi on July 28. Had a short visit and continued on. Who could guess the sadness that was forthcoming. I met George when we were 9 or 10 yrs old when the family moved to Winnipeg from Kenora. We kept in contact from that time on. The adventures of our teens, our young lives and then our present old age. Many stories to tell as we moved on. We’ll sure miss you man. Hopefully we’ll meet again, who knows? Your old pal of many moons. Ed Melnick
