The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any manʼs death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.

My thoughts and prayers are with Barbara, Ray, and Michael as I learn of the loss of their Dad. He was a good man, dedicated to his family, especially dedicated to his wife, and great with the neighborhood kids. I very much enjoyed talking to him as an adult, as he was interesting to speak with and had a great sense of humor. May he rest in peace.
