  1. Foti, Nick and Mike, I was very surprised to see the obituary for your dad in today’s paper. Please accept my hearfelt sympathy for the loss of your dad. I always enjoyed sitting with your mom during soccer games and talking and always watched your dad and uncle pace back and forth. (In case you don’t remember I am Phillip Kahl’s mom) You will always carry with you the warm memories of your parents – I am so sorry for your loss.

  2. Foti, Nik and Michael, We were saddened to hear of your father’s passing. We are thinking of you all. We have such great memories of Jim at all the soccer games over the years. Love, Alan, Yvonne, Andrew and Nicole
