    I am sorry to see Babe passed away. I knew him and his lovely wife through Marc when we were teenagers and I met him again at an awful time 40 years later when my bestest pal growing up, Margie T passed away suddenly on the eve I flew in to vacation with her in Fla. So I saw Babe and Shirley under a very dark cloud at that time.
    He was a good man and a great friend to Shirley I believe Marc inherited some mighty fine strengths and characteristics from his dad.
    Miss him well. He was a mensch.
