Eliot was a source of wisdom, sound advice and professionalism. But I prefer to remember him for his kind manner and generous spirit. Our family valued his friendship so much.

One of my oldest friends, grew up together on Artesian in Rogers Park. Great fun back then, even more fun when we all had cars. Laid back but funny at the same time. Many good memories over the past 60+ years.
