So sorry to hear you have left us. I have thought of you many times over the years. Our lives driffed apart after your family moved from Paterson Ave. But,my early childhood memories are filled with the good times we had together. You were my best friend. And I am sorry I never got to tell you how wonderful and kind you were to me. Your friend. Susie Riker

I wanted to let you know how saddened I was to hear of your dad's death (my cousin)and your mom's resent passing. I know this has brought nothing but sadness to all of you. May God's "peace that passes all understanding" cover you at this time.
