Sam was one of 21 Hirschenfang first cousins.
I was the next oldest cousin in the family Unfortunately the sons of My uncle Lois and Aunt Minnie lost touch with the cousins. I was saddened to learn of his passing this past May. It so happens, he predeceased my sister Selma who died May 27, 2018
In addition our cousin Sam Rittenband passed this week.
Out of the 21 cousins i believe that there may only be 5 of us left.
I noted there was no mention of Sam's brother Joel in his obituary.
If any of Sam's survivors would like to correspond with me please feel free to do so.
My email address is and my cell phone number is 732 841 4945.
My wife Evie and I wish to express our sincerest sympathy to all of Sam's family.
