    To the Pfliger family - I was so saddened to hear of Father George's death. He was such a character! Part of my job was to phone all the priests to invite them to the monthly clergy dinner. I would call him and say "Hi Father. Are you coming to the dinner this month?" Every time he would reply "Not if you're cooking". Every time we would laugh and have a nice visit. He will be missed by so many.
