    I always enjoyed when Mr. Goldstein would stop by my office and bring me donuts from the day old bakery. His favorite question for me was, \\\"Did you buy a house yet?\\\" He had a rich life and will remembered with fondness.

    I enjoyed the years I served minyonaire Sunday breakfast with Herbert and the ladies. I was the young one that Herbert trained. One thing I never picked up was the Herbert way of offering eggs. It was then and in my mind will always be “aags”. May his name be a blessing forever.
