Mr. Grossman as I shall always call him was one of the kindest, gentlest people I have known. I first met him when I was a jr. high school student way back in the 50s when I was a classmate and friend of his daughter Joan (and friends we are to this day). Even in this sad time, a smile always come to me when I think about him and Mrs. Grossman. For high school graduation - 1960, the Grossman's gave me a hardback modern library edition of James Joyce's Ulysses. I am happy to say that I stuck to it, and on June 16, 2011, I finished the book!! Every time, I picked "that book" up over the years, Mr. and Mrs. Grossman's warmth washed over and bathed me a little. I consider myself lucky to know that my life has been touched by Mr. and Mrs. Grossman.
