    I am sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. He and his brothers grew up with my dad on the Lower East Side in NYC, so I just felt compelled to send my condolences to you. My dad’s parents had a bakery store on Essex St. right near your grandfather’s restaurant on Rivington St. I know that the families vacationed in the same area in the Catskills in the summer. My dad had received a book from Joe Garrett ‘I remember Dad’, which lead to my dad telling me about their friendship. May your dad’s memory be for a blessing.
