Last summer my dad moved out of the office he had worked in for 40 years. My dad is the kind of person who keeps a lot of things, so when he moved out there was a lot to discover. Among the things he found was a bunch of old merchandise from the Judy Company, which my grandfather (his father-in-law), Hy Berman, founded and ran for close to 40 years himself.
Hymie (he asked us to call him Hymie) died ten years ago this month, at the ripe old age of 97. And, in one last alignment of the stars, I moved into a new office on the first of the month.
