    I am sorry to have read about the passing of your father.

    I remember your mom and dad as good friends of my parents, Emma and Bernie Eisenstein of Middletown, Ct.

    Years later I met your father again in a bank where I was working.
    He was such a soft spoken gentleman.

    Agian I am sorry for your loss.
