Users between the ages of 13 and 17, can use the Services with the consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age; provided, however, that such parent or legal guardian agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, and agrees to be responsible for such use of the Services. Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine




DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. It is Company’s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws.

Leonard Schleider, of Baltimore, Maryland, passed away on Saturday, June 4th, 2022 at the age of 84. He is survived by his children, Leslie (Steven) Hyman, David Schleider, and Aleck (Randi) Schleider; his siblings, Anita (Kenny) Baum and Philip (Rita) Schleider; his grandchildren, Liana (Billy) Vadala, Lila Schleider, and Ben Schleider; and dear companion, Julie Hoffman. He was predeceased by his daughter-in-law, Supranee Schleider; and his parents, Max Schleider, Esther Schleider, Lester Ronay, and Marcia (Cohen) Schleider.

In my own words…
My name is Jules Leonard Schleider, but I am known as Leonard, Lenny or Mr. S. I was born in Brooklyn, NY on June 18, 1937, but Baltimore is where I spent most of my life. I graduated from Forest Park High School in 1955, then served in the United States Marine Corps. I then attended the University of Maryland and graduated in 1960. After my father’s death I entered our family business, a small catering service. I stayed in the catering business forever.

In 84 years on this earth, I have lived through the standard process of birth, school and work. I have been a son, brother, husband, father and grandfather – roles In another standard process. I’ve had my ups and downs.
As the saying goes: “The Devil is in the details.” `From the book – Rainbows and Storms. My Life by Leonard Schleider

Leonard leaves behind a legacy. Throughout his career he catered to generations of Jewish families; from brissims, B’nai Mitzvahs, to countless weddings. For many years, Leonard was also the Kosher caterer to the White House and Israeli embassy. As a national event caterer, Leonard also provided food service for the 1984 and 1996 Summer Olympics. One of his proudest endeavors was as the Founder and Chairman
of the Jewish American Festival, which began in Baltimore in 1977. Leonard has always stated that raising his three children to become kind and respectful adults has been the greatest achievement and satisfaction of his life.

Services at Sol Levinson's Chapel 8900 Reisterstown Road Pikesville, MD 21208, on Tuesday, June 7th, 2022 at 12:00 pm. Interment Beth Isaac Adath Israel Cemetery. Please omit flowers.

Lenny represented a generation who served a very different kosher Baltimore.

I grew up in the bedroom Len grew up in the bedroom Len grew up in on Berkeley Avenue. Our (Bernie and my) parents bought the home from Lenny's parents in the early 60's. Lennie came back one day when I was in my late teens to walk through for the memories. He was always so friendly when we saw each other on his boat or at events around town. Always had great stories to share. I will greatly miss knowing I won't have that opportunity to schmooze again.
May his memory always be a blessing.

To the Schleider and Baum families: My deepest sympathy on the passing of your beloved Leonard. He was my first cousin, by marriage, and I always loved and admired him for his kindness, compassion and many accomplishments. I last spoke to him 7 months ago when he called to offer his condolences on the passing of my sister, Myra. I could actually hear the tears in his voice.

He was a wonderful family man and a real Mensch. Rest in peace, dear Lenny. You have left an amazing legacy which will never be forgotten. ♥️❤️❤️

Leonard Schleider was a good friend of the B'nai Israel Congregation on Lloyd Street. This past Purim he prepared delicious corned beef and turkey sandwiches at our shul for our celebration after the megillah reading. He always took an interest in the downtown Jewish community and his passing was remembered during our Yizkor service on Shavuot. May his memory be for a blessing.

Aleck, David, and Leslie,
We are so terribly sorry for your loss. I loved your dad and always enjoyed talking to him when I saw him. I called him and spoke to him on the phone from time to time after my dad passed away. I do have a funny story about Lenny. He was invited to my wedding with a date, but he replied that he wasn’t bringing a date…..fast forward to the prereception. I’m having a conversation with Sheldon Goldseker and he asked me if I met Lenny’s date. I very calmly said, “No, but can you excuse me for a minute?” I didn’t know what to do because we didn’t have a place setting for his date. So, I found the wedding planner and asked her what could they do because we now had an extra person at the wedding that wasn’t accounted for. She told me not to worry about it, they would take care of it. I guess because he was a caterer himself, he knew it wouldn’t be a big deal. He was so proud of all of you! I’m sure my dad gave him a big hug and welcomed him with open arms. Love to you all!!

From a very young age, and then living in Carroll County, and like all Baltimore area Jews , I was introduced to the Mayor Schaefer area Jewish festival and with it all the great delicacies prepared by the Schleider companies. Yes, going downtown for a good Corn Beef and Knish was a thing! Later, after returning home from college in the '90's my search for a good Seder to enjoy as well as bring my grandparents naturally led me to Rabbi Max's and Liberty Jewish Center and my Brooklyn born grandmother, ever the critic, raved. Those Communal seders were great! From then on, I always enjoyed seeing Lenny at local functions or services and when I became involved in a Jewish outreach group based downtown looking to throw a unique event, I sought out the Black Eyed Susan and again, Lenny volunteered the vessel at a terrific cost, and did so for a few more years! That group, became part of Chabad and is going strong today. All the good this mensch of a man and great Marine will not be forgotten! Semper Fi and Baruch Dayan Emet. My deepest sympathies to the family

I loved him, my wife and kids loved "Weird Uncle Leonard from Ballimore." In truth, he was anything but weird. He was a loving, loving man, a Marine and a true friend who will never be replaced. Leonard was a patriot, as true to the Red, White and Blue as an American could be.

We met years ago during a Passenger Vessel Association dinner at the Avalon Ballroom on Catalina Island in California. We became instant friends wearing the identical Brooks Brother camel hair sports jackets. I still have mine. It has the memory of my ol' buddy (who could cut quite a rug, especially on St. Patrick's day) imbued in every thread. He knows what I mean.

Oh, Leonard. I miss you already. God hold you close and give comfort to your family. As they say in Italian, you were a true mensch. More than that, you were my friend.

Requiescat in pace, Marine.

To the Schleider and Baum families
With great sadness I send my condolences on your loss. Forty nine years ago I was married at Emerald Gardens in the new Gold Room. We were the first event there and watched the building go up brick by brick. It was a wonderful affair and I still have the menu page printed for each guest. Two years later I started my professional and personal relationship with “Mr.S“, “JL “, Leonard, Lenny and “boss”. It would be one that I cherished and still do. I often say that he “sent me home crying more times than I can remember".
On reflection, a tremendous learning experience. Remembering every word he ever spoke, ie. “If you are on time you are late”. Many events huge and small, planning sessions, long holiday work weeks, working with Kenny at The Knish Shop. Full time, part time, special times as I honed my profession elsewhere. Always there with guidance, help and support he became part of my blood line. This relationship was far beyond professional and became everything a best friend / brother / confidant, even a father could be to me. I will greatly miss my friend and the bond not to be seen again in my lifetime. As late as three weeks ago, we would talk every Monday where he would ask what I was cooking for my clients that week. Suggestions, thoughts, support, pride and encouragement for me. The week would be filled with many more conversations, shared meals and get together with groups of mutual friends. The many staff and clients of SCI Catering, Cameo and the Black Eyed Susan became shared family and their respect, work ethics and love brought his professional, personal and ethical beliefs to all of our benefits. May “Mr.S”, “JL”, Leonard , Lenny’s, Boss’s name be for a Blessing for your families. Remember his total love, respect, support and dedication never to be shaken. Alway a Marine , patriot and supporter of Israel and his community/ profession.
I love you all and will always be near.

- Larry

OOPS, or as he always called me “Lawrence” even long after my mom stopped. Always bringing a warm feeling.

I haven’t known Lenny as well as some of his many close associates and friends, but I got to know the real man over the last half a dozen years. To know him is to love and admire him for being such a genuine person. Lenny was a Baltimore legend in the catering and food industry. Lenny took tremendous pride in his family, religion and the USMC. Lenny was a regular at our “young men’s breakfast group.” He would share many stories of his business ventures with us. I will personally miss hearing all his stories.
Lenny, on behalf of the “breakfast group,” we love and will miss you. We know we will see you again on some “cloudy” or “rainy” day. Baruch HaShem!

I first met Lenny about 75 years ago when I lived on Oswego Avenue and snuck into the Schleider caterer kitchen at Beth Isaac synagogue for some samples. Lenny never disappointed me and always had a knish or a piece of kugel. Fast forward many years later whenever I saw him he always asked not only about me but my sister and brother. He was such a kind person always caring. May his memory be a blessing and you all have nothing but good thoughts to remember

Condolences to the entire Schleider family. Schleider's Caterers , Baltimore City & County were synonymous, (one & the same). If you grew up in Baltimore, or visited here and attended any bar,bas mitzvahs , brises, bridal showers, weddings, or even paid respects at shiva houses or unveilings ; rest assured....the delicious kosher food was provided by Schleider Caterers.....A family run business started by Max & Esther Schleider.A Baltimore built institution. I am sure over the decades starting in the 1940's or early 1950's they employed hundreds of workers, from cooks to delivery drivers. Leonard learned the business well from working with his family. Later on, he even catered to the non- Jewish community in the Baltimore/Washington areas t/a Cameo Caterers. My family was in the Baltimore taxicab business for over 65 years, serving Baltimore City. This is what Baltimore Jewish families did, much of the 20th century. We lived our lives and breathed thru our businesses, serving the public and our own communities.This work ethic was passed down thru each family generation.Kenny Baum, founder of "The Knish Shop" is another example of hard work & honest business ethics. All Baltimoreans mourn the loss of a great person, Leonard Schleider. May Hashem bless Leonard's good soul. Baruch Hashem !!!

So very sorry to hear of Lenny's passing. Our lives go back over seventy years to the Schleider Caterers days and their facility in the Beth Isaac synagogue on Cottage & Oswego Avenues.
My late mother worked as secretary and shared office space with Lenny's parents at the shul and I remember fondly the memories of the banquets and social events prepared so eloquently. Lenny always looked out for my mother and me when we were working in the shul, always with delicious
meals. Lenny, Max and Esther worked long and hard to ensure that their catering business remained successful for so many years. I still recall the wonderful luncheon prepared for my Bar-Mitzvah at Beth Isaac.
My sincere condolences to the families of a great guy and good friend.
May Lenny's memory be for a blessing.

Leonard was my godfather. He was not a normal godfather. For one, he was a Jewish man that was made a godfather in a Catholic Church to a baby who was screaming and vomiting like the devil was being pulled from her body during her christening. You would think that would have been a good time to back out. And no, I have no clue how my dad got this even to happen because again...Jewish godfather to devil baby in Catholic church is just not something you hear often. He never forgot my birthday or the holidays. He would listen patiently on the phone when I told him my good news, even though I know he could not really hear me. He picked on my dad a lot and that was always fun to watch as a kid and very fun to watch as an adult. Him and my dad have been close friends since the 70s. They were like two sides of a coin really. The stories that they told of each other were pretty ridiculous. He owned this cool dinner boat in Baltimore (The black eyed Susan) that I got to go on a couple years before he sold it. I took my husband and father in law on it for fathers day brunch. It was such a neat boat and such a neat experience. The people who worked with him just really loved him, you could tell. I am really going to miss him and I am really sad for my dad, my godfathers family and everyone else who is mourning this loss.
