My most heartfelt condolences to Judy & family on the loss of their dearly beloved,
George -- an absolute "prince" of a guy, a real "mensch", and the epitome of a "true
gentleman". He extended his kindness, friendliness, thoughtfulness, and good nature to
everyone he encountered his whole life through.
I had the pleasure of making George's acquaintance in the 1970's when my daughter,
then age 4, began piano lessons with him at the JCC in Skokie. I valued his thoughtful
friendship and appreciated his superb talent. In time, he recognized my child's own
exceptional talent, and later, recommended her to attend the prestigious North Shore
School of Music in Winnetka, where she continue her piano studies until age 16.
Judy, may all the beautiful memories of your 40 years together live on and bring you
comfort and peace.
With Sympathy,
June Zfaney
