  1. Elaine and Family,
    My sincere condolences to you. And Elaine I was so very happy to have talked with you today.
    My fondest memory of all was how George saved us from disaster on the Bay Bridge during the '89 World Series Earthquake. We were the last car to make it across before the top of the bridge came down and blocked the rest of the traffic. We made it back to Sacramento in record time since I believe George was driving fiercely at 100 mph. You and George were my commute buddies.
    I will never forget how kind and considerate George was in his "macho" way.
    God has given you and your family a Blessed Gift…..MEMORIES OF GEORGE TO BE CHERISHED.
    God Bless and Keep you all.
    Fondly always,
    Ginger K. Napue
