Hi all

My dear husband George Ilott died this morning in hospital. He had Alzheimers' and had been in failing health for some weeks.

Those of you who are long time KA'ers will remember him posting as OldGeorge, and knew of his kind heart and great sense of humour. One of his few regrets was that he never was able to get to one of the KA parties.

He spent a lot of time on all the KA sites, right from the beginning and hoped that he helped by sharing his experiences. Anyone reading his posts, would understand why , when he was at work, there was a constant stream of people at his door asking 'Uh, George, could I ask you about something?'.

He knew so many people on KA, that I have to do a group email, instead of individual ones.

We will all miss him

Dorrit Ilott (Blue Northern)

Hello Dorrit,

This is very sad to hear for those of us left behind that he touched in a special way. He was such a kind and loving person here at Kickas and I remember the video/film on the story of his fathers death and how his brother had been saved. I never met him in person, but I could see from the film he was just as kind in real life as he was here at Kickas.

I will miss George, he was every bit what Kickas represents for the good.

My prayers to you and family for comfort and healing.

Dear Dorrit

I am so very sorry to hear this sad news. I have missed Old George around here for some time and had been very worried that he might be ill. I hoped I was wrong and that he would pop up at some point.
He was a treasured friend to many of us. His sense of humour was outstanding. He frequently talked of you Dorrit, with such affection. You definitely meant the world to him.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to you and your family. I will miss Old George very much and can only imagine the depth of your loss.

I am so sorry to hear of this terrible news...
I too had been thinking of George.....hoping he'd pop in and post...
I remember what a warm welcome he gave me when I joined way back in 2001..when KA was just a wee little start chugging along. He helped me find information on an antique piano my hubby had purchased for me as a gift. He was always so kind.

The site was smaller then and George offered not only support but kind words and encouragement. I also remember how fondly he spoke of you. You were both blessed to have had each other in your lives.

My heart breaks as I write this post...he was a very special man, friend, KA member, husband and father. I will always remember him in my heart.
Much love and prayers to you and your loved ones during this difficult time.
ladyBuggie aka Angie
