Ronnie’s daughter, Elaine, shared wonderful and funny stories of growing up in Brooklyn with her parents and grandparents. I felt part of her family as I listened to these great tales . Most of all, I was so moved by the love story of Ronnie and Lee.
I am thankful on this Thanksgiving day, to have known Ronnie and to have received one of her unique baby blankets for my grandson born this year. Her love, spirit and kindness lives on. Love to Lee, and my bestie Lainie and family Ed, Rae, Becca, Ben and Lainie’s sis, Joy.
