I'm a Kiwi. I was introduced to George in 1990 or so, by our mutual friend David Hamilton. David, English but living in St Tropez, is a world-famous art photographer. <http://hamilton-archives.com> which I manage for David. He knew George from the time they both spent in Paris. I couldn't call George a close friend of mine but the period 1991 to 1994 was a terrible time for me. George helped ease the pain by offering that I should stay with him temporarily while I found my own place. It was much fun. George would not let me cook and would not let me iron my own shirts! Funny, George had a boyfriend back then who treated George like shit. I could never understand why he put up with it. And there was Yan, the little Chinese houseboy. Very nice guy.

Rowan Sherrard I'll always remember his house in Sydney, was a fantastic place. I accidentally leaned on the fridge when the paint was wet once, could never tell where you could stand or lean in that house, haha. Was an amazing place for a 7 year old. I'll... never forget George. So kind.

Who can think of George and not think of him in the midst of some great social whirl - whether he be in paris, london or sydney he always gathered a mix of people that was hard to rival - such was the enchantment of his warmth his generosity and his outrageous sense of humour - When I first met him over 20 years ago I could easily say I had never met anyone like him. What I didn't realize then - but understand now these years later - is that there truly WASN'T anyone like him. He was a unique force of life. The life I have now is one I owe in no small part to you! I send you enormous gratitude and much love, Jasonx

Having George no longer with us is a great loss. He was one of a kind and we are all certainly poorer off not having him around to remind us of so many important things - above all for me - the value of friendship and community. I met George many years ago - and through all his travels and my own we have always maintained contact and friendship. Dinner at his home was always a thrill - a random selection of people who he cultivated because of his inherent interest in others and his generosity of spirit. To me he was an inspiration - living a life he wanted on his own terms but forever mindful and concerned with making a contribution to others and touching their lives in many ways. George you played an important role in my life - more than you can really imagine and I want to thank you for being a mentor, friend and inspiration. Much love to you and wherever you are I know you are already making the place better and more joyful for others. xx mark
