-I just got back from Florida celebrating a Passover with my family. When I landed at Newark Airport I glanced out my window and saw a star falling from the sky. Obviously it had burned out before it reached the earth. At that moment in time I thought to myself what a joy it is to have love. Especially when I had just left a heart breaking departure from my Grandfather. We had embraced each other as we both showed our strength in one another by bear hugging. I love that man more than words can say...your Grandson Adam

My favorite grandpa. Being first born I had the pleasure of grandpa throwing a block party for me when I was born. Loving him and knowing the type of strong man he was, I will never forget... the cruises we went on, the vacations to Kutcher's in the Catskills, the Homowack, the Amish country... you name it, we went there! A man strong as an Ox and now as strong as "Elijah the Prophet." Grandpa, you now started your pilgrimage, so keep sending us your strong spirit and just maybe we'll hit that number for you. I love you my Grandpa Marc. Love your "Doll Girl."

I will always remember great times in Atlantic City with my Uncle Marc. Win or lose he was always a winner. He hailed Caesar's statue at Caesars and created many a smile on all the people he tapped on the shoulder for good luck. My good luck was knowing him.
