Remembering Dad 19 Years Later

We lost my Dad, Irving Slutsky, on September 14, 1997 from pancreatic cancer.  I also remember how hard he worked to support his family.  For about 20 years he managed a woman's clothing shop in Mount Vernon (Westchester County) called Ruby Lane Stores.  He usually worked 6 days a week.

He was a big fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers and on July 15, 1957 he took me to my first game at Ebbets Field.  He also took me to my first Met game at the Polo Grounds on May 30, 1962.  On the anniversay of his passing I light a Yahrzeit candle seen above to remember him.
