    A very good friend has left us way too soon. I knew Tom & Genzi when they lived in Arizona. He gave me a great banking opportunity with First National Bank of Arizona. We had a great 2 year run. Tom then returned to NY. Have very fond memories of you & will miss you. My condolences to Genzi, Justin & Schuyler.

    There are so many ways my father, Tom, has shaped the person I've become today. I'll never forget our drives together from Guilderland to Ithaca, the baseball games we watched together, the meals we shared as a family almost every evening at home.

    I really miss you, a lot.

    Rest in peace.
