    Dear Drolet family, friends, Just a note to tell you I'm sorry for your loss. Two yearsa go, I was new at Terry's Ballroom dance (Woburn Elks). I sat down at table next to where George always sat. We got to talking, joking. What was unique about him..he wore tap shoes, so always knew he was nearby. I enjoyed some dances w/George,a likable, smart gentleman. Oh, I send BIG thanks to you, George for your wonderful service in Army (during Vietnam era). Know that I (and some others) at the dances...will miss you --George. Peace and Good, Gwen Scott
