Dear Eleanor
As I say farewell to your dear husband and my friend, I am flooded with so many wonderful memories of the times we all shared. I was there the night you and Lee first met after we had dinner with Herb and Janet at the Gaslight Club. The two blizzards in the 1970s gave the three of us the opportunity to party a bit and act like teenagers having a snowball fight while walking uptown in the middle of the streets empty of traffic (maybe the snowball fighting was just Lee and me – I know he put a capful of snow on my head). It wasn’t Dom Perignon, but the Andre, consumed at the beach so many times, tasted just as good to us making for lazy wonderful days. His patience and yours when Gregory insisted upon slamming the doors of Kilfrush (constantly). The New Years’ Eve after Greg’s birth we celebrated with you and Lee, my parents, Herb and Janet and Ruth and Len – great food, company and many laughs. Although infrequent, It’s been wonderful sharing time with Lee and you in the last few years – looking out over the east side from your balcony! I could go on and on and only wish these last many years would have given us more time to make more memories.
A Renaissance man, Lee was a fearless skier and golfer and never hesitated to share his rather liberal stance with conservative me – most of the time teasing and baiting all in fun. He led a good and full life with you at his side and will be missed by many of us.
