    In expressing my deepest sympathy for your loss I must tell you how much I will miss this wonderfully pleasant and intelligent person. I will also miss our “schmoozing” time .

    Dear Florence, Daniel and Richard

    You may not remember me but as a high school and nursing school student I babysat the boys many, many years ago as did my sister Marie(Teddy). Erwin would drive all the way over to Highwood to pick me up and take me home again. He always asked how school was going. What a very nice man he was. I remember how he loved the Beatles who had just arrived in the USA. We also shopped at Sterling and Susman. Good memories. What a nice long life he had tho is it ever long enough? My deepest condolences to you all. Carol Bissonnette Solomon
