Margie, I just heard the sad news this evening. Robert Rosenthal got a call from Janet (Buxbaum) Yanuck with that news. I just checked the internet and found the obit. What a wonderful story and contribution to our Country. Please accept my sincere condolences. Best, Dick Optican

I am so sorry to hear that my dear friend Sherman Naidorf has died. I have so many fond memories of time that we spent with the Naidorfs. I especially remember how much we laughed at him when we were SCUBA diving together and he looked like papa smurf. Rest in peace my friend.
