I was saddened to hear of Keith’s passing. Growing up on Ninth Street, I have fond memories of Keith and his family. He was always kind and his smile and laugh were contagious. Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all and Rest In Peace, Keith.

It is with great sorrow that We learn of William “Flash” has passed away. Flash was good friend of my son John Eric Moore who worked for Ziegenfelders for 30 years. Fortunately Friends and Family have the opportunity to pay their respects which should have happened with John but poor planning by his Mother negated any visitation by anyone. Flash and John will be back together making popsicles in Heaven. John & Sharon Moore
