Chipper - It was with sadness that I read about your Dad's passing in the paper last week, and I want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts. These strange days are difficult enough, and you were given an additional burden. Stay strong......and keep all your wonderful memories of your father in the forefront.....those are the thoughts that will give you strength and joy, that will help the feelings of grief recede.

Sad to read of Warren's passing. My condolences to his family.
Warren was a great co-worker, one of the nicest and kindest men I had the pleasure of working with. He was a gentleman who never hesitated to help others and be there when needed. Only have wonderful memories of working with him.
Again, my thoughts and prayers to his family, may he rest in peace.

Dad was always there for me and our family. Every Christmas we would start the morning off with all of us opening our presents and he would religiously, video or take movies of us and every gift each of us would get to document the day
He would spend hours staging the gifts on the living room couch for recording.

He Never missed recording our family holidays. Or major events, Kennedy’s funeral, every rocket launch, landing on the moon, and I am sure some UConn Girls basketball.
He was generous, kind and never had a bad thing to say about anyone.
We will miss you dad, but never forget you!
Love you dad!
