David & John,
My condolences and sorrow of hearing Uncle Richard passed I actually visited him on Harold St. early last year. I have very found memories of your mom and dad, your dad always seemed happy with a smile on his face . I remember very early in my life watching baseball games with your dad, uncle Gene, and uncle Bob, I was about 7. My dad enjoyed being with the boys. Take care cousins my heart goes out to you .

To Richards family, I had never met your father or anyone from your family. We are related, my name is Don Pikarsky. For 21 years, I worked for the Syracuse Police Department and never once did I stop over on Hood Ave to interduce myself. From my side of the family tree, that's how we are and it doesn't make it right. My condolence's to you for your loss.
