Donations in George's name going to excellent organizations

In the death notice in the Chicago newspapers, I suggested that in lieu of flowers, people may send donations in George's name to the following organizations (to which many people told me they have donated):

Page One of the monthly FAIR publication Extra. George was a subscriber and supporter of the organization, which critiques media coverage.

Loop Church, Chicago ( where George's sons and I are members.

FAIR, 124 W. 30th Street, Suite 201, New York, NY 10001. Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting is the nonprofit progressive national media watch group (

In addition, some people donated to CaringBridge, a free website people may use when they need to share information about a family member's illness. I used this website to blog during the summer before George died.

Thank you so much to many people for giving to these good organizations in George's name.
