We were so shocked and sad to hear about Elliot. Elliot created an atmosphere at Dr. Heisman’s office that made all of us patients feel like family. His unlimited patience, genuine care for each individual patient/client, sense of humor and extensive experience as an optician combined to make every visit to the office a positive one. My whole family feels the same way about Elliot and we already miss him. Our deepest condolences to Dr. Heisman, her sons and the office staff at this difficult time. Sincerely, Marie, Eric, Alyssa and Andrew Casanova

I am grateful for the years Elliot and I would sit together and discuss business and family. He and the staff supported my Bolle Sun business and were always eager to learn about new things. I will miss him! Ed Mortka

I remember when Elliott and Dr Jean first bought their home across the street on Main Street. We watched their young boys grow up and business thriving. We will truly miss Elliott and his family loss. God bless you and God bless your family.
