I had the pleasure of playing tennis Sunday mornings with Jerry for many years. He was a great tennis player and friend. He always had a smile on his face. It was not as much fun when I played against him and he won even though I was 30 years younger. That's when he would smile the most.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Kornreich at a William King Museum reception a couple of years ago. He was a truly delightful human being. I know he will be missed. Marcy, you and your family are in our prayers.
