  1. Please accept my love and sympathy in this time of loss. I knew your Dad for many decades. He will be sorely missed.

  2. So sorry for your loss. I’ve been thinking and praying a lot for whole family. Mr. Weiss had long life and blessed with wonderful wife and kids and grandkids. He’s with God now and his loved one that have gone before him.

  3. Thinking of your family during this time of sadness. I will miss the hug I got from Mr. Weiss every time he came into the office (Internal Medicine). He was such a sweet and kind man who always brought a smile to my face. Sending lots of love….

  4. We grew up in Brooklyn, NY during the depression times in a Multi Ethnic neighborhood where our parents owned a grocery store that was open every morning at 6:00AM until 11:00PM and both my brother and I worked there each and every day. We learned to work hard, do math in our heads as we rang up groceries, be polite and respect everyone.
    Since both our parents were immigrants from Switzerland we never had any relatives here to share our holidays and special occasions with ,so we missed that family connection until we were adults and were able to attend my mother’s side of the family OTT family cousins Reunions in Schwyz, Switzerland. These took place high in the mountains which overlooked the four lakes and many other mountains where our uncle lived with his wife and 16 children…
    Then we organized my father’s WEISS family reunions every five years which was wonderful.
    Most of our children have been able to attend at least one of these family reunions in Switzerland and a few of our Swiss cousins have been able to visit or stay in our homes for extended periods of time.
    For some reason my parents always called my brother George Arnold but when he was drafted he found out his legal name was Charles George and through a good part of life he went by “Chuck” changing to Charles in later life..
    I introduced my brother to my Norwalk Hospital School of Nursing classmate Cynthia Ethel Bruchac when he was home on furlough from the Army and the rest is history. He set high standards for himself and his family and was very frugal , never wasteful but quick to help you if it was needed. His loving care of his wife through her lengthy debilitating decline in health was so unselfish that I wanted to be with him while he was under Hospice care so that he would have the best care that he deserved given with love.. His wish was to die at home so our Mission was accomplished. He is reunited with his beloved wife and children and we will be together when our Lord calls us home..

  5. Dear Chris and Family!
    Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your Dad. I was so sorry to hear that. In reading the obituary, your Dad was certainly an amazing man. Please take care. Gerry

  6. Paula, I only met your father once but he was a very kind and beautiful soul. May he rest in peace and may you keep him close to your heart and in your memories.

  7. You taught me a lot, you put up with my talking all the time but you were always kind and loving. You were awesome Godparents to my boys and they remember some cool stories about the boys house on gulf st., one of a kind….Hahahah To my mentor and my rock when I was young.
