  1. Hello Jeff and Family:

    I could not reach you by phone today, and I regret that I have to use the impersonal electronic version of a conversation. Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your father. I apologize for being late in learning of his passing. Yesterday, I was skimming through some old newspapers that I had not previously read, and I was shocked to see a picture of a familiar face. Along with Mr. Sasaki, Quinn and Russell, your Dad was a big part of my life when we were all growing up. To this day, I am still thankful for the positive influence of those “Old Crabs.” That waddler had the terrific combination of a genuine great guy, fun to be around and interesting to talk to. The world is a lesser place without him. These times are difficult to deal with, don’t forget to take care of yourself, your family and most of all your mom. Please wish her well for me.
