“Winky” was a great friend of my fathers and to our family. Growing up down the block on Morrow; The Heffernan’s were a big part of my childhood. At 5 I helped Winky build his deck. He would remind me of that memory and I hold it dear to my heart. Wink was one of the good guys. I am so sorry for your loss. We were unable to attend the funeral. Ruth, Janet and Chris - I send you strength and love. Winky wil not be forgotten. Hugs
My sympathies to the Heffernan family
