Claire, Marji, Michael, and Stephen,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire family on the passing of Hersh. I remember meeting him the first time when Gordon and Joseph were born then through the years I worked with Marji and then the family. He was always so proud of his family. It was a pleasure to see the love and joy you all shared. May his memory be a blessing to you all.
