Forget Me Not: George W Wolf, 1920 PA

 When I read an obituary there is often something special included that I stop and read again. George was "the last surviving member of a family of nine children."  We can read that he had a wife, children, grandchildren,... but his siblings had all died before him. I wonder if that was painful for him.
