Dear Michele, Philip, Tommy and family,

My sincere sympathy on the loss of your dad. I have many good memories of playing pinochle with your dad (he was my partner) and mom. Going to Hampton Beach on vacation and so many other good memories. We became friends when I was taking a walk with Debbie past your house in Colonie and Tommy and Debbie started playing.
I am sure he will be greatly missed by all of you. Again, my sincere sympathy. Sonia and family
