Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Keith–My Mom called to tell me about your Dad. Please accept my deepest sympathy–my Dad died in November 2004 and although I thought I was prepared for it, of course I was not. I have many great memories of your Dad. He was the best ‘den father’ and provided a safe, welcoming place for all of us to grow up. I hope you will e-mail me and re-connect. Your friend, Marc

  2. Eli Diamond was a man of great character, loyalty, intelligence, practicality, and humor. He was my father’s best friend for over forty years. I know my dad found strength in their friendship and that Eli did as well. Many heartfelt blessings to Diane, the love of Eli’s life. Blessings to all those who love Eli. Eli will be sorely missed, yet his spirit lives on in the next world. This, I know.

  3. I have known Eli since I was born. He was ever present during both happy and sad times. He was a constant and true friend to my father. I will remember as a constant in my own life for his love and devotion to family and friends and his steadfastness in his beliefs. I will miss knowing that he is but a phone call away. My love and thoughts go out to Diane and the family they shared together.
