Bio and Links
I was born in Scranton Pa. Graduated high school and moved to New Jersey in 1951. Married Robert Ryan and had five children. Four sons, one daughter. sons, Robert, Gregory, Michael, James, Daughter, Debra. I was married 18 yrs to my first husband. I am now married to Joseph George, my best friend, wonderful stepfather to my children.
He has been at my side through every step of happiness & sadness in my life. My daughter lost her only child (son) at the age of 26 yrs old in 2001. I lost my son Michael at the age of 43 yrs old in 2003. Losing a child leaves a terrible hole in the heart of the one's who loved them. To believe that they will so gently take our hand when our time comes to be reunited with them again and lead us into God's beautiful garden, unafraid, is a joy to behold. Until we meet again, rest in peace my angels.
My grandson is here:

Hi Shirley
So sorry to hear about your husband. I'm happy to hear he remembers you. It must be hard on you. Please take care of your health. I'll send prayers your way.
We still think about our Michael's, if we can make it through that we can get through anything.
Have a blessed and peaceful new year.

RE: Shirley A. George
Thanks your your message. YES, we all have to take a stand! Is the head nurse the only problem you are facing with this nursing home? I would love to hear more from you regarding your situation. It's amazing how few people respond to posts that I have all over the internet. Most are more worried about football scores.

We are entering the 4th year of our legal battle with this well documented torture facility. By the way, they have a 5 star rating on the national nursing home review site. When the state does inspections of nursing homes, they send in registered nurses to do them. Nurses reviewing nurses. A lot of them know each other from other jobs and school so they don't want to give bad scores.

The directors for the nursing home have chosen to just not show up for depositions. We are in the process of getting a court order. God knows how long this will all take but I'm determined to ride it out until the end then break the story to the national and local media.

I found out a lot of my information regarding this nursing home by placing ads on Craigs List and talking to people while I was at garage sales or standing in supermarket lines. The ad I placed on CL went something like this. "Looking at 3 possible nursing homes for Grandma". Then I listed the one we're suing and two others that I just threw in. You might want to try something like this for fishing for information regarding what you are going through. You would be surprised what a small world this is.

Anyway, feel free to email me at I try and help anybody that contacts me if I can be of any assistance. I have learned a lot. Also find an Omsbudsman for your area but be careful if your husband is still in this facility.

Thanks for your email and God Bless.

You are very welcome. I am so sorry for the loss of your son and grandson. Having both myself, I can only imagine the huge hole in your heart that will never heal.
