    I will always remember all the great family times--Thanksgivings, Labor Day at the New York State Exposition, summer picnics and more. Those great times made all of our generation who we are today.

    Paul, Thanks for putting the obit in the Utica local paper. It is so easy to lose track of your friends. Our generation seems to be disappearing.
