Good evening friends,
Tonight, we pay tribute to one of NYC’s finest, Mr. Harold G Kobner who passed away on Sunday September 24th.
If there was ever a real life “Everybody Loves Raymond”, it was Harold Kobner. Everybody Loved Harold.
This was truly shocking news. As many of you remember, I had just done a post about what a great real estate broker Harold was on September 16th, eight days before he passed. He was very active in the comment section of that post. Like I said, truly shocking news.
Harold had a very calming effect on people. Whenever I would go on a ranting tirade, he would calmly say, “Scott, do you want to give yourself a heart attack?” — And bam, I would instantly be at ease with a smile on face. From there, he would gracefully take the conversation into another direction so I wouldn’t feel embarrassed of how I just acted.
Whenever we would walk around the city together, I always felt like everything was going to be alright.
One of his best stories was of his mentor in his 80’s who used to tell Harold that if he could do it all over again, he would “worry less”
So friends , I’m passing this on to all of you, and all of Harold’s friends out here, “worry less”
As we all know, Harold was a great human dad to German Shepherd, Max. He loved that dog like I love my dogs. I’m very involved with animals as many of you know too. If anyone knows who’s taking Max, I’d love to connect with them and see that all is OK.
Harold, we love you. We’ll never forget you. The world is a better place because you were in it. Rest In Peace brother.
Amen. Scott Smith for Sammy & Family.
