    Tina and Tracy,

    I am not sure if you will remember, but my sister (Neena) and I were children at Park-a-Tot! I love your dad and mom like there is no other love for grandparents. They took us into their care and even invited us in their home after hours to feed us when our mom was working late. I made a friend at the age of 2 years old at Park-A-Tot. Her name is Arianna. He have been friends for 35 yrs now! We are still friends today ! Your mom and dad were invited to and came to my wedding! I remember sneaking (with his permission..lol) up to his recording room, which was literally above the kitchen of the daycare. I felt special. I felt loved. And, I reckon he (they) loved us-all of the children. I still have and cherrish a vinyl record your dad gave us kids with some of his songs. I will forever cherrish them and their memories.

    ~with love and condolences
