My condolences at your Father's passing, I remember Mr. Feinstein and Mr. Padavona enjoying coffee together at Walden Place, where I once worked, and it was so nice to see those two gentlemen taking off out of there to go to dinner, and the whole getting ready to "blow that popscicle stand" and go somewhere else...they were content to have something to do, and I often wondered what they were up to! Thanks for the opportunity for me to get to know Mr. Feinstein, I will never forget that gentleman!!!! Berni Torres, LPN

Val, I was so sorry to read about your dad. My deepest sympathy. Jud Holland

Dear Feinstein Family, I just want to offer my condolences. I had the pleasure of taking care of your father at CRMC Nursing Facility for over a year. He was one of the sweetest men and truly one of my favorite residents. I hope you know how much he loved all of you and your Mother. When he did talk to us it was always about what a great family he had. He was very proud of the pictures he donned on his wall. I am sorry to hear that he will no longer be with us and hope you suredly know that he will be missed. I have made a donation to the SPCA in his honor and thank you so much for sharing your wonderful Father with me. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Heather Hall CRMC CNA
