    To the Liveten family,
    We’re so sorry to hear of your husband and father’s passing. He was a super man and quite a horse & dog dad. Some of my favorite stories had to do with him and the dogs Sharon found that earned their frequent flier miles going back to MA. Our sincerest condolences. You’re in our thoughts and prayers.

John and I will be out of state on Thursday, but we want you to know that our thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. My fondest memories of Norman are in your New Haven home where Norman would let me view his beautiful model trains and share his vaste knowledge of these collectables. His eyes sparkled brightly when speaking his passion for trains. Our sincerest condolences and deepest sympathy.

    I am so sad to learn of Norman’s death. He was a fine and caring gentleman. He and Benjy were my “big brothers” when we lived on the 1st floor of 443 Whitney Ave. from 1935-1940. Ike & Mary Liveten were like grandparents to me, and Wendy was my first dog.
    I will always love your family and miss them all. Please know that we share in your loss, and send our deepest sympathies.

    Our deepest sympathies to the entire Liveten family.
    Ben and Norman were representatives of what it was like to work for a “family” business. It was a honor to know and work for them both.
