I met Corrine in the summer of 1948 when we were both 12 years old and attending Camp Brookwood. We spent many summers together and would keep in touch during the rest of the year. We would met in the city for lunch and a movie or a show, she coming from Newark and me coming from Brooklyn. I have pictures of both Corrine and Leonard at my wedding in 1962. Corrine always had a positive outlook no matter what problems came her way. She was a wonderful friend and I will miss her emails and phone calls. RIP my dearest Corrine you deserve it.
My deepest condolences to the whole family.
