I am so sorry. It seems like just yesterday when my mother was telling me about the wonderful man you were marrying. You know how much she loved both of you! She would tell us what a "gem" Ira is and I am sure she told you the same although I know you didn't need her to tell you that! I am so fortunate to have had you both at my children's simcas and I am always here for lunch or anything else you need.

Dearest Beverly,
I feel so blessed to have know Ira. He was a terrific man, always a pleasure to talk to and never faulted in keeping a watchful eye over my parents. For that and for his own graceful nature I'm so greatful. He touched my heart and I miss him already. Much love to you and yours, -Gail

Dear Beverly-
I was so saddened to hear of Ira's passing. He was a very special friend and will surely be missed. He fought the good fight, and is now at peace. I think we are all better for having had Ira in our lives. My love and sympathy to you and your family.
