    We didn’t know Mayor George, but we do know his son Anthony, who baptized us in the faith. From that, we are confident that the Mayor was a wonderful man because his son is an exceptional human being. Service to others above self; serving this present age unselfishly…. Our heartfelt condolences to the George family and our love ❤️ for allowing his son Anthony to be a vital part of our lives…. Kenneth & Mamie Lewis, Orlando, Florida
