Bob and Family,

I remember two things about your Dad:
my Dad thought he was a wonderful person and leader, and deeply respected and admired him; and he was a man who got things done - I guess the apple didn’t fall from the tree.

Deb and I send our love, deepest condolences and sympathies for your loss.

Bob and Bill,

I remember interviewing your dad for the high school newspaper when he was town councilman. When Mario Cuomo became governor, I always thought he was a lesser version of Tony Saitta.

May your dad rest in peace,
Rich, Donna and Madeline
