George (the brother from another mother) so many memories to share over 14 almost 15 years. I will share a theatre one. I remember our first time working together in theater. I was going to help you direct you were going to design the stage. It was going to be a fantastic set but as you kept putting things up ..I kept saying, "George it is too far to the left .." this went on and on until finally the set was almost set up and you looked at me and said "You know..You're right the stage is too far to the left." we laughed redid it and have been friends since!
