Hi Rick,
I don't know if you'll see this. I just learned of your father's passing, sorry to hear of it. I have lots of memories of your parents and you, either at our home in Scotch Plains or yours in Watchung. Your father was the photographer at my wedding, and did a lovely job. It was especially nice because my own father had just passed away not too long before that.
My condolences to you and your family.

Eric I'm so sorry for your loss. I only did a few jobs at his house but I always looked forward to when he called me and we used to talk while I was working. I'm glad I got to know him even if it was for such a short time.

He and my father were good friends. I always knew him as “Uncle “ Warren. He’ll be missed.
