So much to say about George and so little time. George was a special friend of 50 years and will be greatly missed. He was also an amazing race car engine builder which helped Ray have a pretty incredible racing career. Ray will also never forget the wild ride from the dinner in Georges Corvette when Judy went into labor with TIffany. He was there from the beginning for our daughter. We were also blessed when he brought Barbara into our lives. There are so many fond memories spent together. And when you meet up with Lucy will you please say hello to Spike for us. (our grumpy cat that liked George more than anyone else)
Ray and Jusy Shea
