He was a very kind person, and I liked going to visit him. I have two large and three small paintings that he gave to our family; one of my sister's also has a painting. He is buried in Mount Feake Cemetery in Waltham, Massachusetts. I stop by to say hi when I visit my Grandparents who are also there.
