    Nancy and Janet and family,

    My heart goes out to you at this difficult time. I met him almost 3 decades ago and I was always very fond of him. He was a kind and gentle soul who adored his family and always made me feel like I was part of that family too. He had a great sense of humor and the last time I saw him he had me laughing so hard. That’s my last memory of him and one that I will never forget. He will be greatly missed. Love you Nanc.

    Parvaneh and Mike
