George bailed me out too many times to remember. I almost always have used well used vans for my work, and they seem to be in need of repair on a monthly basis. George had his mobile auto repair business, and thank God he did! I would need to drive to Boston on a weekly basis on Fridays through Saturdays. Many times my van would have some kind of issue arise on a Wednesday or Thursday which would require an urgent message for George, "George, this is Scott G. I need your help!!" Without fail, he had me up and running for my calls. For that, I'm forever grateful!
