I was so very sorry to hear of the passing of your father. I have been asking about him as I did know that he was in the hospital.
Soon, there will be no older people left in Mersey Point that I know, and that is sad.
I have always been fond of both your parents. I have memories of playing up in the yard and seeing your parents. God bless all of you kids.
To the Levy family,
I went once to your dad’s house.but I know many of his family members and I want to convey my condolences.
