    I’m sorry to hear of your dads passing. My dad always spoke highly of Henry. Their partnership at Delia was very successful and lasted far longer than most partners do and was based on honesty and respect for each other. If you get to Delia sometime please call. Gordon

    Linda, Maureen, Ross and Tim,

    I was sorry to read of your dad’s passing. We were asking about him when we in Delia in November. It seems hard to believe that the Larkin and Isaac partnership ended over 40 years ago. They must have made a pretty good team- perhaps because they were such different personalities. I hadn’t realized how close in age your dad and my mom were- both born in 1921.
