    Tony and Michael, I was saddened to read of Topper's passing. The time we lived next door to you on Irving Ave was a very special time. I think the bonds we formed back then positively impacted all of our lives. I saw Topper a few times over the years, once when he owned the Pizza Shop in Elbridge. He was always so friendly and willing to help anyone. My deepest sympathy to you and all the family. God Bless you all Carol
