My Deepest Sympathies to the Genet Family.
Lenny and his family were friends with my family as I grew up. After he became a Dad, when Lenny would visit at our home, at some point during the visit (and we came to expect the moment to arrive), Lenny would proudly ask, “would you like to see photos of the kids”. It was like a game we played along with and so we would say “Absolutely”. Lenny would then pull from his shirt pocket an accordion of photo pockets, front and back sides filled with photos of his children. In my memory, the accordion of photos literally reached the floor! All of us would giggle at the grandiose collection of photos Lenny would ALWAYS carry with him. Lenny would lay out the accordion of photos on our pool table and PROUDLY tell us the story behind each shot.
My dad (Stan Golin) was self employed and Represented several lines of products in the paper industry. The Genet Family and Dade Paper were loyal customers of Stan’s, in addition to sharing their personal friendship. Stan had a heart condition and late in his career, the expense for health insurance became so enormous, it didn’t make sense for him to be self employed. During a sales call Stan shared this dilemma with Lenny. Lenny immediately offered Stan a job at Dade Paper as Sales Manager in the Miami division. At the time, Dade Paper was Self Insured and Lenny did this, knowing that in a couple years my Dad would require another, costly, open heart surgery. When the time came, Stan had THE best medical care and Dade Paper picked up the tab! As an added benefit, Stan loved working at Dade Paper!
I will always be grateful for the friendship and love that Lenny and the Genet Family showed my Dad.
Lenny, thanks for loving my dad, Stan.
Rest In Peace
