I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Perlmutter passing. He was my guidance counselor at the then North Junior High School. He changed my life. Coming from a family with no experience in higher education, he was the one who casually expected me to think about colleges. It would have never entered my mind. He opens a whole different world to me and I will always be grateful.

I send my heartfelt sympathy to Martin’s family. I worked with Martin at Reid Middle School. I remember him as a caring and thoughtful man. The welfare of the students was always his major concern. Rest In Peace, Marty. Floriana

Martin was in the same class at NASTC as my late wife. They were friends and she really liked him. Although they lost contact he was kind to send a letter of condolence at her passing three years ago. Please accept my sad thoughts at his passing. And wish you the best for the remainder of your life. Walter Gehring
