I was sorry to hear about the passing of your father. He never missed a chance to stop and say hello to me . He had a quick wit and wonderful sense of humor. He will be missed.

There are too many fond memories of Eli to list here! He adored my mom (his wife at the time) as they both enriched each other’s lives. His deep radio voice, big hugs with his whiskers rubbing against my cheek, his smile and laugh, his Jewish history and roots, his wonderful three daughters who each make the world a better place, and the list goes on.
