On behalf of the Mendoza family, I extend deepest condolences to the De Peana family. I had the distinct honour and privilege of working with George for several years at the ILO. He was a true gentleman, humble, kind, caring, pleasant and respectable. As ILO Senior Specialist on Workers’ Activities, he was dedicated and committed to serving the people of the region. Being the labour educator he was, he always fought for and defended our rights as workers in the office. To his family, may God grant you peace, strength and courage to deal with this loss. George we will forever miss you but we will be comforted by the beautiful times we shared. May you Rest in heaveny Peace.
