    To the Kriegelstein Family, Diane and I want to extend our deepest sympathies on the passing of the Mr. Kriegelstein. Both Mr. Kriegelstein and Mrs. Kriegelstein hold very special places in our hearts. When we moved to Seneca Falls and specifically to Seneca Street 43 years ago – Jim and Donna (and of course the girls!) welcomed us with open arms and kindness . . . The type of reception one always remembered. When we moved from the neighborhood 10 years later it was with regret because of the outstanding neighborhood we lived in – lead by Jim and Donna. It had been my hope – if we had stayed – Jim would have provided his car expertise to my sons . . . Given I have none!! May the family remember all the smiles of both their parents as well as continue to share positive moments with each other regarding their parents. I am sure Jim and Donna are looking over all of you from heaven . . . Please continue to keep the faith. Peace and God Bless, Jerry and Diane Macaluso
