Well, we all wish it. I think we can all agree with that. But every person lives their own lives in their own ways. & each of us must live with the consequences of our choices. I think George knows that & knew it in his last days before he actually left this world.

The bottom line is, you either love George as he was, & as he is now, or you don't. You can't change the past. So let it go.

Funny - I never thought that was a good picture of George. I may be the lone dissenter, but I don't think it's 1966 George at his best.

Yeah, but smoking cost Harold Sr. and George their lives. If you can quit smoking, Cloud, then we encourage you to do so.

Cloud, once you quit, STAY quit. Doing that start-and-stop routine is very damaging to your lungs:

George on his first steps down
his own long & winding road



Is that gentleman Mr. French, George's
maternal grandfather? Harold Sr.'s father
died before George was a conceived idea.

Damn, that boy with the
thick, naturally wavy hair
sure was fine!



George's voice on "I Need You" was very sexy.

So cute, don't you just want to pick him up and hug him?

I do think that's the maternal grandparents. The lady has Lou Sr's cheekbones, which George inherited. Could be his aunt, tho, she doesn't look very old.

I thought the gentleman looked more
Harrison than French, but Harold Sr. lost his father when he was very young.

Lou gave her cheekbones to George. When I was little, I thought George (remember the Harrison portrait, minus Lou, taken in 1951) looked like Lou, Sr. In all the other pictures and footage I've seen, you can really see that Harold Sr. left his stamp on George.

Paternal Gifts:

Thick, wavy hair
Ectomorphic body build
Prominent ears (George's least attractive feature)
Trademark smile
Deepset eyes
Good work ethic

Maternal Gifts:
Cheekbones
Some facial expressions
Intensity that never left his eyes
The gift of being able and willing to see different perspectives
Good work ethic

Ah, George inherited his dad's lopsided grin!
One of the cutest things about George.

Yeah, but his least attractive feature was his ears.
George even joked about them.

Luckily, his long wavy hair made them less conspicuous.

Even so, he was a damn beautiful man.
