To the Moses family, so sorry for your loss. I sat next to your parents in the Dome for basketball season for a number of years. They were such a lovely couple. I missed when they stopped coming to the basketball games. Now that your parents are reunited may your dad’s memory always be a blessing. With much Sympathy Rachel Rothman
