  • We were Soupy’s neighbor for many years on Kroft St. When our family moved there, he was amazingly kind to all of us kids who relied on each other for our fun times. Soupy was so nice to everyone, even the girls! I can still see him batting that ball right out of our makeshift ball diamond. Such a giant, such a lamb. He was good through and through and I know he will be missed by hundreds of lives he has touched. Our deepest sympathy from a couple of the neighborhood gals,
