A Lot of you know him as Maiel or may have called him Shorty, I knew him as Dad. It’s certain that many of you have a story or a memory of a tale to tell that is special to you. My Dad was a very energetic man for most of his life until he passed. Many of you remember the leprechaun and him always saying, “Catch me if you can.” I’m sure some of you have even heard him say, “Stop signs don’t stop me.” Maybe some remember him cruising in his car and being Mr. Goodtime. In whatever memory you have of him, hold it dear and share with other family so that he may live on forever in a New York minute. Let us give thanks that Maiel (my Dad) lived his life adventurously, courageously, comically and above all happy to have seen his family grow throughout the years from all branches of the Tree.
