Lila and family : Mundie's advice, guidance and humor will truly be missed. I always felt like he was my second Father and I will always remember the good times we enjoyed together, especially the Plymouth Fury! During this very sad time, please know that we too will miss him and pray that your pain will diminish and only the good times will remain in your loving hearts. Love, Florian and Janet

I worked for Mr. Hegewald at Valey National, he was a fair and honest man who tough me so much about banking and business and did it with his own special sense of humor. He was a good and decent man and I am so sorry for his family's loss...May he Rest in Peace
