A TOAST TO GEORGE
A toast to George! The finest man I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. A man with a heart so big the universe perishes by comparison. A man who is always willing to turn the other cheek, and who always keeps his judgment of others quietly to himself. A man who shrugged and said, “What can you do?” when his brother-in-law embezzled every cent he had. Who said, “It happens,” and still gave me a hug after I seduced his wife at last year’s Christmas party. The same man who, when replaced at work by a young college graduate, shook the kid’s hand and said, “I’m sure you’ve earned it.” So, here’s to George. Thank you, George. Thanks for everything! Especially for staying out of the way.
