    This one rather hits home for me.

    I didn't get to know George personally, but I do his nephew (son of his brother, Sam, who both went into the custom car business), their children, and his sister-in-law (Sam's wife). Lovely people. Anyway, you'll know George and his work from this:

    Yes, that bottom one is a Prius, and one he drove every day.

    BL.

    I was wondering if Yanks had stopped snuffing it temporarily; haven't seen any death notices here for a short while. ;)

    So death notices are sunshine (for you)?

    No. Just a means of saluting and recognising the achievements and accomplishments of the deceased.
