Dear Sikora Family,

So sorry to read of this. While it's been quite a few years, I have nothing but fond memories of Sue and the "Mensch" that she was. My condolences to you all.

Dear Mitchell,
So sorry I just heard about your Mom. I have such fond memories of her and our times at Akiba. My deepest sympathy. Losing a parent is terribly difficult.

Sue and I were in a meditation group together. She was so rich in spirit and in love. I will miss her.
Prayers to you, Sonny, and your precious family.
