George "Shadow" Morton
by Joann Westburgh
(New Port Richey)
I met george when I was 13, he was 15. George was hanging out the basement window with Artie and Marty and I walked by. He called me over and that is how we met.
I was crazy over him; he was my best friend and boyfriend over the next four years and he took me to my prom. We lived 3 blocks from each other but went to different schools.
I have so many memories of hanging around Marty's house with George, Artie, Sal, Tony and Marty's brother Joe. George asked me to marry him when I turned 17. I will never forget that night because I turned him down. I was to young but deep in my heart, to this day, I am sorry I turned him down as he was my best friend.
