My sincerest condolences to Angie and the family. I owe a great debt of gratitude to Hermie and Marv for my life's path. Because Hermie was willing to let me sit next to Marv as young boy whenever we were at weddings and the Hi-Fis were playing, I got the music "bug;" and the rest is history. I've had an exciting and rewarding music-based career in New York, thanks to Hermie's encouragement of my musical abilities at a very young age. You will always have a special place in my heart.
