Vensentina and family,
I am so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. He was truly a great man! I have so many fond memories of him. One of my happiest memories is when he asked me to join your family when he was picking up your mother from the hospital after she had Kristopher. He also had the best hearty laugh!
All my love,
Eileen (Ward) Rothstein
