Dear Collier Family: Please accept our condolences for your loss. We grieve with you and will all miss George very much. George was always well liked by everyone and never hesitated to put himself out to help anyone who needed it. George was always someone to share a joke with and was a lot of fun to be around. Things will not be the same without him.

Uncle George,

To hear he was gone is a great shock. I spoke with him a couple of weeks ago. Our famous conversations, full of laughter and such support and always hanging up feeling much better than the start of our talks. He was the strongest , most kindest man I know. I will love him always and my heart hurts knowing I will never hear his voice again. My sympathy to all. Let''s think of all the joy he brought to us and smile when you hear his name...
Always in my heart,
Lori Collier

George: Your helping heart and way with words leaves Summer Street permanently changed. I am still looking for you out my window and feel the sadness even more so once I get to the street. You helped me a lot--as you did for countless others--welcoming many of us into a new building and a new neighborhood. You always looked out for us and never missed a beat. I will treasure my last conversation with you on Friday evening. We covered the gamut in less than 20 minutes. Thank you George, always.

To George's family, and to his friend Chrissy: I am a tenant of one of the Laurel Street buildings managed by George. Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. We miss George a great deal, still expecting to see or hear him around every corner. He had a kind soul and a kind word for everyone.

I knew George before I moved to Laurel Street because he often helped us out and was a good neighbor to the Somerville Home, the retirement home on Summer Street where I work. He connected me to Laurel Street when I was looking for a more affordable apartment.

George could be a "rascal" at times, but a charming one. He was a friend to all. The last time I saw him was a few evenings before his death, when he stood waving at me from his porch. Last Friday evening, I came home to find a package outside my third-floor apartment door -- brought upstairs by George - one of the many little things he did to make our lives as tenants easier and brighter.

He was a friend to animals, too - we often chatted about his dog and cat. I often worry that my elderly cat's "yelling" may be disturbing other tenants, but George always told me, "Don't worry, they're all good people - they know he can't help it."

The funeral mass this morning was a moving tribute to a good man. I will miss George, and never forget him.

To Christine and the Collier family,
George was a great guy always with a smile on his face. He would go out of his way to just say Hi. He will be deeply missed.

You brought our neighborhood together and provided us with a true sense of community. I will miss our talks and getting to hear your amazing stories. You always kept me laughing! Summer Street is the first place other than the house where I grew up that I really felt like was "home". I owe that to you. Thank you so much for everything you did for Pete and I. We will miss you everyday, and will never forget you ( especially your smile). My deepest sympathies to the Collier family. My thoughts are with you.
