George Dear George,. You must know how deeply saddened I was over your loss. You were one of my dearest friends (neighbor) and will be sorely missed. We have many people in our lives Family, neighbors and friends But no one knows us quite as well Or shares our deepest secrets The teasing and comradely with laughs we have shared will always be with me. "Friendship does not end at death. It is eternal."Good by my friend for now!

George, It is so funny that I met you when I was just a teen and I belonged to Friendship. Even funnier was when I realized I used to haul your father's groceries from the Linwood Market to Johnson Avenue in my little red wagon when I was just a little kid. It was years later when I started dating Lynn that I realized you were related. You were a noble man and came from a great family. I remember Aunt Margie putting in a good word and helped me get into Scott Paper. Before we were family, we were friends; when I married Lynn, we became "friendly family." Thank you for the person you were! I am going to miss my friend and uncle. You were a role model in the firehouse and in the everyday world. I loved you, George. I miss you.

Uncle Georgie, You were the last Kucipak left for us to enjoy. Bobby and I grew so much closer to you over the last year. We enjoyed your sense of humor and your LOVE of the beach. Never have I seen two men who loved to go out for breakfast as much as you two did. I am especially happy that Luke got to know his Great-Great Uncle Georgie; he cherishes that "bird" calendar that you gave him. He remembers everything you taught him about the different birds pictured on it. Most of all, Luke prizes the memories he now has of "your" hummingbirds at the beach. He is making his Daddy put out hummingbird feeders so he can watch his own hummingbirds. Thanks for being a great uncle, a terrific family member, and for your service to our country. I always think of you and Aunt Margie when I look at the big gold mirror you two gave me that hangs over our piano. It's been there for years and it will remain there. Good bye, Uncle Georgie. I remember you when I was just a little girl in Gardendale, and you will be missed -- especially on January 6th. That was a lifelong tradition that I promise you will continue for as long as I can make it happen. Pirogies and raisin bread will live on every year as they did every year in the past. You will be missed by each of us on our next January 6th! Love, Lynnie and Bobby
