Hi Peter, This is Roy Goldschmidt from many moons ago. I have been trying to reach you with no success, just to catch up on the many years that have elapsed and make contact with unbelievably OLD friends from the past (48 years to be exact). I am sorry about your mom and dad. I do remember them fondly. My email is [email protected] and my home phone is 609-235-9271, cell phone is 201-650-9108. Hopefully we can make contact.
Roy Goldschmidt

Dear Peter, linda and Ricky, I just found out of your mom's passing. I can't tell you how sorry I am. She was always so very nice to me. Your mom and dad were such a big part of my parents life and family. How I wish we can all go back to those days. There's nothing more I can say other than she is at peace in heaven with your dad, my parents and all that went before them. You will all be in my prayers. Peace, patricia
Patricia and bill Collopy
