Dad, it's still so hard to believe that you are gone. You've always been there for me through out my life. No matter what I could count on you. I miss hearing your voice and our talks. You've always been so supportive and encouraging. There is so much that I will miss about you. You were an amazing person and father. Thank you for everything. I love you and miss you so much more than word could ever express.

Dad, I can’t believe that you are gone. I can’t thank you enough for all that you have helped me with. We will miss your Thanksgiving visits and I will miss our weekly talks on the phone. I always enjoyed the time we spent together whether it was a car ride, walking around a museum or watching tv, I was happy to have your company. You taught me kindness, generosity and appreciation for the people and places around me. Thank you for all of your love and being my dad. I love you and I miss you.

Ron, My brother and friend. I am going to miss you a whole lot. I miss you already. We didn’t get to see each other often because we live miles apart but I will miss our phone calls. I love you very much and I miss you already. Love your big Sister Barbara

To My Friend "Mag",
I've missed you since we've both retired from Sikorsky and I've thought of you often. It was a long and tumultuous thirty nine years, but I am sure that I wouldn't have made it past my first thirty nine days without your company as I wasn't familiar to an environment with so many people and so much activity taking place all at once! Your offbeat humor and quiet demeanor always put everyone around you at ease.
Thanks for the help during work, and the good company after work. Those hours spent together will always be special memories that I will hold onto. God Bless you Mag!
Your Friend, Stein
