To the Egies Family,

My name is Elizabeth McManus and I am a neighbor of George Egies, “Mr. Egies”, as many of us called him. My fondest memories of Mr. Egies is of him bringing his famous potstickers and other treats to the block parties. He always made a huge tray of delicious treats and many of us knew to eat them before they were all gone. Mr. Egies brought his family to the block parties and it was nice to meet and chat with them. I have no doubt that his life was full and that he brought many smiles to many people. He will be missed. My family and I offer our warmest condolences for your loss. May you have strength to carry on and may you remember always the beautiful memories of George Egies.

With Love and Prayer,

Patrick, Elizabeth, Lauren, Brian and Audrey McManus

Mr. Egie, and family, will always hold a special place in our hearts. Over the years, he had become such an important person in my life and my children’s lives. I have so many wonderful memories of Mr. Egie: my kids and I would help him rake the leaves in his yard every fall. Mr. Egie always had patience with them as they would jump in the pile of leaves that he and I raked up. We also would cook for each other. I’d bring over meatloaf and potatos or cookies I just baked, and he would bring over his delicious fried wontons or teriyaki chicken. There were even several occasions that I asked Mr. Egie if he would watch my twins while they napped so I could quickly and easily pick up Jake from preschool. He always said yes and he was always willing to lend me a helping hand. He’s someone who we will miss dearly. We love you Mr. Egie! And thank you for all the fond memories you’ve given us.

With love,

Michael, Melissa, Jake, Joshua, and Madison Moraja
