Dear Margaret and the entire Swiderski Family:Miriam and I offer our sincerest condolences on Henry's passing. There are so many memories we have of all the years that we were neighbors, right next door, and all of the years after we moved that we continued our friendship and getting together. Our children growing up together, our outings to the Botanic Garden and the Polish restaurants and their fantastic potato pancake'sHenry was a terrific, helpful neighbor, as you both were. He was a fantastic personal tailor and a true gentleman. He was talented, outspoken on many topics, and we enjoyed our political discussions and a beer now and then.He will be missed but we were fortunate to have known him and his family. We wish you all continued good health and look forward to getting together in his honor.Warmest regards,Harvey and Miriam Orlov

Dear Christine, What an amazing life and gentleman your father was. The perils he faced and endured, championed an incredible spirit, few can claim. Being first generation, I have the utmost respect and reverence to those who prevailed through WWII. His remarkable qualities shine in you. What a blessing to you and your family to have a man as such to be your father. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family, Diane
