My condolences to the Mulligan family. I had the pleasure in getting to know and taking care of Mr. Mulligan. We bonded over him teaching me about baseball. He was always a joy to work for, he made my job so easy. He loved talking about his children and grandchildren all the time, once no National game was on.
He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the family.

My heartfelt prayers and condolences to you all on the loss of your beloved father. I have many happy memories of our times together in Springfield ------Uncle George was always so nice to me, called me "doer" (haha) & had such a joyful spirit about him . As my mother said yesterday to me : "Well your father & Uncle George are sure going to have a happy reunion in Heaven now!" May God bless Uncle George.

We'll never forget the St. Patrick's Day parties at the Mulligan's where the price of admission was the telling of an Irish joke. Linda Renkes, of Nordic ancestry, consistently came up with the best jokes. George was a great friend and neighbor; he will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his children and family.
