About "George The Tailor" I have known him well Since I was 16 years old And his personality cannot Be "bought or sold" For he is kind and considerate And always a nice word And to say anything less Would be absurd And not to mention his workplace Where the "tailoring's" the best And the "dry-cleaning" I tell you There's no "con- test"!!! And for your own amusement He's got a "Marine collection" That'll make any museum Look "like an infection"!!! I thank you George For "a wonderful place" And for keeping Dormont In the "Dry Cleaning" race! Billy Nardozzi Green Tree

Hey Billy that's a pretty good poem. You must be a poet and actually know-it! Haha!! Well George is a wonderful man and veteran that served our country with distinction. I think he's wonderful. Also his shop does the finest alterations I have ever seen. I am glad we have his shop here in Dormont. Keep up the excellent work George!! I like to walk past his store as well; he posts some wonderful information on his windows for all to see and appreciate.
