Carolyn and Phil – I am so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He was such a kind and caring neighbor. I always called him Mr. Amadeedee. When I was little he told me to look both ways when crossing the alley and look up for planes and I did it every time. For years I walked through his yard and he always spoke to me. He was a wonderful neighbor and he will be missed by the whole neighborhood. I know my mom especially will miss him helping her with groceries and just talking. I am sure he and my dad are catching up with each other in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you during the difficult time.

Carolyn and Phil,

Please accept our condolences. What a shock it was to hear about the passing of your father. We had not talked to each other for awhile. Now I have lost my contact person to go over my childhood memories together with him. He would always bring up stories of me when I was growing up in Steinersville. I was blessed to have such a good friend. He was truly a good person. I know all of you will miss him, but cherish the time you had with him. Thanks for the wonderful memories, “Leego”. Sincerely Mary Ryncarz
