The Charny family sends condolences to the Brostoff family on the loss of a superb physician and wonderful friend. The Brostoff family welcomed the Charny family to Pittsburgh on July 1st, 1955, and we were close friends for decades, and even today, Leon and Joel manage to keep in touch despite separation. I am forever beholden to Phil, who saved my life when I was stricken by a heart attack while riding my bike in Schenley Park. I will attend the ceremony on Tuesday to express my condolences personally. Joe Charny
