Ethel Trapp was one of a kind. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. Her quick wit was priceless. She loved her children, her grandchildren, her friends and dogs with grace and loyalty like no other. I was fortunate to spend time with Ethel and those she loved years ago. I will never forget her.

I have such wonderful memories of Ethel in the neighborhood - a grand lady with a lot of pep and fun outlooks on life. She will be missed but she's left quite a legacy in her own loved ones. We send our love and prayers to the family.

My dear Bubby,

I will always cherish the time spent with you: the Easters in Garden City, the endless supply of Jell-O and holiday cookies, milkshakes for breakfast, warm hugs, travel to new places and hearing singing to whatever song popped in your head. Because of you, we have so many pictures to remember all of the best times together. I will miss how you were always there to talk and so willing to help in any way you could. You were so beautiful, dignified and classy; I will never meet another person quite like you. Lauren, Liz and I were beyond lucky to have you as a grandparent. I love you, I miss you, and I hope we’ll one day see each other again.

With love always,
Hal
