Being childhood friends with Rochelle, I grew up the with Gildar family. I loved both Sara and Jack and they were so sweet and kind to me. There was always something good to eat, (apples on the kitchen table) and if we were lucky, some berry wine that Mr. Gildar made. Their home was warm, welcoming, and funny as it sounds, spiritual. It felt good to be there. I also loved seeing Rochelle's artwork hanging on the walls. Mrs. Gildar knew my family and was always interested in how everyone was doing. She was part of the fabric of my childhood and I cherish our memories. Love you, Sara. Yeh-hi-zikh-ro bah-rukh.
