  1. Dear Ron,
    From one Yonkers kid to another, WAY TO GO!!! My father just finished telling me about how your grandfather fixed the canvas roof on his Ford when he was a young man. My dad is now 92. He is so proud that you are honored with this award. He tells me that your family is from the same region in the Ukraine as his father and that we have been taking our scrap metal to your dad’s shop for years.

    Have a safe and productive journey. Let’s hear it for Yonkers!!
