  1. Melissa and Robert, I am so sorry to read of your dad’s passing. I did not see him often, but when I did he always had a quip to share. Your mom spoke of him with great love. My deepest sympathies.

  2. For Melissa and Robert-
    My condolences to both of you. I was deeply saddened by the loss of your father. Tom and I worked together several years at the ITT office in Nutley before being reassigned. We have been friends for over 40 years. And Tom being Tom, would never mince words and speak what was on his mind and so be it! May he rest in peace with Barbara.
