When you loose a memory it’s very hard to put into words.
I had the most great pleasure of knowing Mrs Bedrick for roughly 45 years as her son Allen Bedrick was my 6th grade teacher. Afterwards we became great friends and I had the pleasure of spending very much time at her home, either doing some chores, or having her play that great piano as she was a concert pianist, I always wished I could have that piano and learned to play. Mrs Bedrick was such a dignified lady and I’m so glad that I was able to have known her for all the years I did. Even my late aunt thought the world of her.
In closing, Mrs Bedrick was a true and amazing person in everything she did and accomplished.

Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of Mrs. Bedrick. I remember her as far back as elementary school when she observed our teachers in (the old) school #4 on Cranford Avenue... and believe I remember Dr. Bedrick as well. She was a regal, admirable, very sharp person. My mom (Edie Saunders) and grandparents (Belle and Louis Kimmelman), who are all sadly gone, knew her well and held her in the highest regard.
