"P" taught me that umpiring was more than just calling balls and strikes, safe and out. He said that having an ump who knew the rules meant that the players could play the game and that the game was about them... And, whenever I played, he stayed consistent and said to play the game and to let the ump do his (or her) job. That made sense then...and it still does now, 40+ years later. Thanks P

Pinky was an absolute joy whenever I saw him on the lanes. He was a blessing to those who knew him. Pinky was also your worst nightmare when you bowled against him. He was a biological machine that took the shortest steps I ever saw when he approached the line and he rolled a beautiful bowl. He was a ballerina in bowling shoes. :-) I will always miss his performances.

My parents had nothing but nice things to say about your folks. Loved having your dad at softball games cheering me on and getting my head straight. Wonderful man
