I started working for Nathan Weiss in September of 2014.  From the very first day on the job I learned that Nate was a punctual man.  He had his breakfast lunch and dinner and all his daily activities at the same time each and everyday.  He new and kept on top of what medicine he took and he new what time he was to have them.  He had the best taste in clothes i.e., silk shirts special Italian made sweaters extra nice suites dapper footwear – he carried his professional work attire over to his retirement days. – after a while he did switch over to a more relaxing clothes line.  He loved listening to music from all over the world – every night after dinner he would pick out a few of his special artists and listen to them for hours before he retired to his room for the night.  He ate a healthy diet and enjoyed many different foods.  He liked gardening and he grew many vegetables in his big organized garden which he tended to his self when he was able.  He loved picking the berries from his berry bushes sampling them as he went along.  He was a very smart man and he made and was consulted on all of the decisions in his household even up to the days before his passing.  He would meet with his sons often and he enjoyed the camaraderiey of  business and fun discussons they had together.  He had many special friends and he would remember them on their special ocassions in his thoughtful caring ways.  He was so proud of both of his son's and his grandchildren he loved them all dearly.  His sadness and hurts in life were overcome by the happiness he found in loving and providing for his family.  He taught me a lot about the senior years of life iand life in general.  He took a piece of my heart with him to heaven –  Xoxoxox Nate !!!

I met Nathan when he was 97 years old . He was sincerely interested in the work I was doing in Eastern Europe with Jewish cemeteries and how we are progressing with the Capital District Jewish Holocaust Memorial . We shared stories about Brooklyn, NY, , talked about changing times, and had a few laughs together. Mostly I remember how bright he was and how well loved he was by his family.  A blessing.

Bob & Jeff,
Your dad always had a presence that filled a room. He lived such a vibrant, long life. Your family has always had a special place in my heart with great memories of our young years in the neighborhood. He’s left a real mark on our small corner of the world and I’ll remember him with warmth and gratitude for his part in my life.
