My condolences to Mr. Kerbelis' family. I married into the Smith family over 35 years ago & was told of a great friendship between Mr. Kerbelis & Richard Smith. I met Mr. Kerbelis when his agency planned our honeymoon & would run into him in the grocery store occasionally. He might not have remembered me each time, but he was always so pleasant to talk to. I met you, Mrs. Kerbelis on one occasion. What a lovely couple you made. May he Rest in Peace. Debra Smith, Amsterdam NY
