Andrew Sarkisian

Andrew grew up in Westboro, MA with his brother Matt, and parents, Bob and Betty. He was a tremendous tennis and soccer player, and a passionate golfer. I met Andy in March of 1997 at West Virginia University where he attended college. In the fall of 1997 Andrew and our group of friends joined the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. Andrew was a quiet guy and one that everyone liked, respected, and knew they could count on for anything. Andrew graduated in 2000 with a degree from the West Virginia University School of Business and Economics and went on to marry his college sweetheart Rachael in May of 2004. They lived in Bellingham, MA, and both had great careers going, and had a bright future in front of them.

Fred Schneider

My father lived a very rewarding life for more than 52 years. He was born in the Bronx in the summer of 1944, and was raised in a modest apartment with his mother, father and twin brother.  His colorful personality, great sense of humor, and strong work ethic all contributed to his successful professional life. In 1964, he started his career with Superior Printing Ink, a small printing company based in New York City. Over the following 32 years, he was a key contributing member to the growth and success of the company. In 1978, he was named the branch manager of Superior’s newly opened Marlboro, MA facility. By 1984, my father was promoted to regional manager; and in 1995, after successfully overseeing all of the company's northeast operations and growing its customer base, he assumed the role of Senior Vice President.

Rose M. (Valzania) Cohen

My grandmother, Rose M.(Valzania) Cohen died on December 11, 2008 at the age of 96. She was the head of the family and an inspiring, independent presence in our lives.  She was born in Italy in 1912 and in 1915 came to this country with her mother and sister on the last ship before the beginning of World War I. They joined her father and lived in New Hampshire.  When he died in the flu epidemic of 1918, her mother and the three siblings moved to Dorchester, MA. She came from humble beginnings - the first houses that they lived in were without indoor plumbing or electricity. She attended a one room school house and only completed the 8th grade before she had to go to work to help the family.

In late 1998, Sandy was fifty years old and started to bruise, lose weight and experience hot flashes.  She took several blood tests, went through a few CT scans and eventually had a bone marrow biopsy. She was diagnosed with CLL, a type of Leukemia that is commonly found in older men, when these results came back.
