My dad, Art Gaffney, worked with your father at Wallace & Tiernan. I remember him speaking often of your father in the most glowing terms. He really had such respect for your father. I was so sad to learn of his passing.

As my kids would say when they were little, "Oh the uncle with the finger? Uncle Lal" So many wonderful memories of past family holidays and visits. My last connection to my Dad Stanley and grandparents. Rest in peace with Cheryl and all of our family.
Always in my heart I love you. Your niece Connie
