    I loved having you and Jack as neighbors a few years back. I will treasure those memories of chatting with the two of you, while you sat in your lawn chairs in the backyard. You will be missed by many, but your spirit will live on through your friends and family. Love, Greg

      TY Greg…..Mom and Dad always enjoyed your visits from a great neighbor from across the street. I met you some years ago on one of my visits to my hometown. Nancy was so close to my Mom in the final days. I hope that she is taking this as well as can be and I will call her soon to chat. My best wishes to you and sincere thanks for your kind thoughts at such time. Larry Abramson

    We were very lucky to have you and Jack as neighbors when we first moved to Fair Lawn. I remember you open your heart to us and our family without any distinction of ethnic, and for that we will always be grateful. Chatting with you and Jack while we sat on your backyard or on our deck it’s one of our greatest treasures. You will be missed by all of our family. You and Jack will always be in our hearts and your memories will live forever in us.
    Love Diana José and family ❤️
