Georgie, Frank, and Kathy - my heart is saddened to see this great lady has left us. She was one of the kindest women I ever met. I had great memories of hanging at the house with George. Momma Pinter was always smiling no matter what. She always wanted to make sure "her Georgie" and I had something to eat before we out or after a fun night on the town. I can still close my eyes and hear her voice after all these years.
