    Rest easy my friend. We had great times together. I’ll miss our lunches and extended conversations as well as the years of Charlytown Canasta games we had with Vera and Suzi. Say “hi” to them for me and I’ll see you down the road.

    candle 7Mill will be forever missed. He is the reason my wife and I got our wheaton terrior, Weezer. I am the chef at the Meadowlands and we talked every day about dogs and cars. He even lent us a book on westies. Chelsea is the reason our dog gets ice cream. He would share photos and stories of his life and his family with both of us. He will be greatly missed. Chef Mike and Ellie.
