  1. I worked with Sabby in the 1980’s at P&C. He was a wonderful man, a gentleman and he always had a smile and a joke or two. He will be missed.. He was part of a bygone era that I will remember fondly. Please know that your family and friends will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. I remember your Dad as a friendly and cheerful fellow; in short… a good man. My mother (Margaret) bought all of her groceries from your parents. She liked and respected them and certainly missed their store “Wilsons” when it closed.

    Please accept my condolences for the loss of your Dad.
