To David, Deborah & Nancy --
With heartfelt condolences, I wanted to reach out to let you know I have fond and very clear childhood memories of Rhoda and Elliot visiting our home on numerous holidays and other gatherings when my father Jack was alive and even well before that -- when Uncle Ben, Miriam, Aunt Estelle, Shirley, Mom Anita, Betsy, Tory, and cousin Richard Gould, June Regal and so many others would gather. Rhoda's kindness and Elliot's enthusiastic wit filled the room as soon as they arrived. All the spirited kindness that the Gordon clan always mustered was very much in evidence whenever Rhoda and Elliot were on hand. Elliott and my mother Gloria remained close over the years, and she deeply appreciated his aliveness and terrific family spirt.
Condolences and warmest sympathies to you all -- Your father was a grand and generous man.
