Mr. Sacher was an amazing man who led a tremendous life. He was so intelligent and willingly shared his wondrous knowledge with us less-worthy types. But it was his quick wit and love for his family that I will remember most. Our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Quenten & Katie Wentworth
