  1. Sorry to hear of Helaines passing. You are in our prayers during this difficult time. Matt W and Matt P Olszewski

  2. Dear Jeff (and extended Gorton Family),

    My Aunt Marilyn Datz just informed me of the recent loss of your dear wife, Helaine. Penny and I had the opportunity to met her on at least two different occasions when we dropped in to see you at your home. I remember her as being so very friendly, congenial and pleasant as she welcomed us into your home and showed us your nice collections of “Americana”.

    Jeff, I am saddened for your great loss. Please accept my sincere condolences and extend them to your family as well. Also, after all these years please know you have come to mind many times because of our early childhood association when I lived in Fulton in the 1940’s. I remember the old “Cayuga St. and Onedia St. Gang” very well.

    In our adulthood, it was always great to see you and your sister Rosemary whenever our paths crossed during my impromptu visits to see my relatives in Fulton over the years.

    Take care old friend . . . . I will stop in to say “hi” in person on my next trip through Fulton.

    Best Regards,
    Michael McKenney
