I was sorry to see the passing of your father. Words are never enough with the loss of a parent. If I had not had to go into the office today, I would have been with you.

Warmest regards

To Arnie & Peter –

We were so sad to learn of your fathers passing. He was a great man, friend and neighbor. We were lucky to have him as a neighbor for so long and will surely miss him.

We send our thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
