I have very fond memories of Seymour, as a very kind and caring gentleman. We always enjoyed our time together, on the golf course, at private lunches, and other opportunities to get together. My sincere condolences to Seymour's family. He will be missed.

I will miss his smile when he greeted me. I will miss his real caring questions about how my family and I are doing. I will miss seeing how much his family and friends clung to him when he was in the room. I am so grateful that I have Larry as a friend since we were kids like he did with my father in law, Marty. I am glad that I can keep his memory alive.

I will always remember Seymour as being very kind and generous. He was someone I always looked up to in the specialty food industry not only because of what he accomplished but how he accomplished it as well, with kindness and good morals. He treated everyone like family. I will be thinking of you all and keeping you close in prayer.
